One other question......

Was not for sure if compiling "UPDATEPRO"
and not "PROGRAMA" would cause that new field in FILEA to be spaced out
or
not with the 01 level MOVE in "UPDATEPRO"?

No - it won't be space filled - it will be garbage filled (the garbage may
of course if you are lucky be >spaces!). All that is being passed to
UPDATEPRO is the pointer to the beginning of the field. Since that field is
longer in UPDATEPRO than PROGRAMA when you do the move you will pick up
whatever garbage happens to be beyond the >end of the original storage.

So what is the difference between....

My example of a Program "PROGRAMA" having one less field defined in it
because didn't recompile it, calling "UPDATEPRO" with the New field defined
in it to do the REWRITE, READ, WRITE etc.....

OR

Having a Using just one Program using a Logical file of a Physical file to
do reads, rewrites, writes and such and I add a new field to the Physical
file but don't recompile the program? Wouldn't that Program also have the
ability to write out Garbage because the Logical doesn't have the new field
in it yet?


Thanks,

Jeff
