Hi, Heater, how are you? The sun is shining in Italy now. May be i'm wrong, but " record format can use only the fields common to all the physical files" is true for the Key definition of the Logical file only, and it's true because of logical reasons only ( i mean not for technical ones). The logical file will contain and show all the fields from the original PFs. There is no need to use OMIT and INCLUDE statement, because the system is able to recognize the record format which is reading from. Try using a DFU session and watch the result. Do you agree ? Yours sincerely.
