Have you tried running a query over the file you wish to add records to, select all of the fields and output to a file. Don't actually run the query but print a copy of the query definition and it'll contain the correct field descriptions you need.

I keep getting a mismatched field type. The file I want the records loaded into has a field type 'P'. This is a COMP field. How can I define a field in a query as a type 'P'?
