Gerald,
I would do this with a "Data Structures/Data Areas".
1: From Action Diagram Press F24=DS Def.
2: Define *DS type "RPTEXTds" Field with a External Definition of 'RPTEXT', 
   Now you can break  "RPTEXTds" into many Sub-Fields. ex, Sub1 A/78 pos
1-78, sub2 A/78 pos 79-156, and so on
Call me if you need me to explain.
Good luck!

Subject: Technical Question: Use of AS/SET - Field lengths


Hi,

I have a Alphanumeric field 'RPTEXT' in a Physical file which is 4096 long.
I need to display the contents of this field on screen. I need to display
78 characters from this field at a time. I was hoping to load the contents
of this field into an 4096 long but I am not able to define a field 4096
long in AS/Set.

Any thoughts?

Regards,
Gerald Lewis
