Thanks for clarifying - now is this true for source you create on a US English machine and open in a British system? Or using pipes in CL for *CAT, etc.? I believe it is best to use invariant characters when distributing source - again, I welcome confirmation or the opposite.

Actually, RPG doesn't have a problem with that at all ... it doesn't need the field names after it's compiled, it just needs the buffer positions.

If you have to access a database file using JDBC or ODBC, then you're in trouble.
