Jon - these are the copybooks as delivered from IBM. I thought there were
methods in COBOL (new for me) that allowed for some fancy referencing of
fields like this.

The only new thing that has entered COBOL that might have any relevance is pointers - but they came in at V3R2 and besides they can't help if you don't have the field to reference. The only other new thing in recent years is supprt for XML processing and I don't see where that fits into this picture.

If this an IBM Copy member, then wouldn't the simple thing be to ask them? They must have changed the interface - and if they did so they must have instructions somewhere as to the changes to be made.
