Thanks Scott. I'll rename everything definitely :-)
The EDI spec for the GS segment has 8 fields all of varying lengths. I
have a file that I use as an ext-DS that has the fields defined as Alpha.
Other segments have numeric. I know that I have to put the numerics into a
work field and then convert.
Can I change the procedure parameters to accept an alpha field that's 256
characters and pass a 2 character field?

There doesn't seem to be anything to reset your 'bufpos' variable back
to 0 when you re-run the program. Since it's already at the end of the
string, there's nothing left to read.
My original code would reset this when you read a new record.
If you do change this to work on EDI-formatted data, I would consider
naming the procedures EDI_open(), EDI_getdata, etc. seems weird to
still call them "CSV", and add an x to the end of the procedure names.

Well I've been changing things and the first time I run my CSVDEMO5
it runs great.
Then next time the test data is blank.
