Gotchas to watch out for:

1. If you are using BPCS Literals (substitutions of field descriptions),
they won't show up in software tools outside those of BPCS, such as those
mentioned in this thread so far. WRKMSGF SSAZ* to check on this. With this
feature, all the BPCS programs show your company's substitute labels for
certain fields, while native IBM tools show the original labels, which are
no longer relevant to how your company is using the data.

2. BPCS has many interesting field descriptions, which can be unpopulated by
how you are using BPCS. You may wish to use not equal blank or zero in SQL
or Query/400 or other software selection.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Field Column Headings of BPCS Files

Dear ALL,
Apology if my question is not exactly related to BPCS. But the data I am
using comes from BPCS files.
I was using SQL and when selecting to show data file records, the column
headings showed the field text and not the field names.
Can anyone let me know how to show the field names in the column heading
instead of field text.
I am not sure if it has to do with how the BPCS files was created. Anyhow,
how can I control it.

Sample of my SQL statement: SELECT * from RCM

Thank you so much for your help.
