Yes I am aware that I can specify a new length. It would be more useful at times to specify an additional length. So when the "Extended Price" field changes length over time, the "SUBTOTAL" would inherit the proper length - but add 2 in the example.

You can reference a field and specify a different length
Check the manual for syntax details

Is it possible to reference a field in DDS but add 2 bytes to the length?


For example:

SUBTOTAL R REFFLD(ExtendedPrice)
Length(+2)


Wishful thinking I'm sure.
