Someone's already mentioned that you can get the reports that used to be in
the (late, lamented) Cross Apps Logic Manual by going into Cross
Apps/Reports/File Record Layout.  This covers everything except SYSCTL - you
can get the SYSCTL (and also the LDA) layouts by going into Cross
Apps/Maintenance/Work With Logic Information.  Of course, since all of the
files are externally defined EXCEPT SYSCTL you can actually use DSPFFD (or
any alternative to DSPFFD you may have on your system) on MAPICS files and
get the info.

A couple of people have mentioned ERLCOMx and ERLIFMx.  These are neat, but
unless something has changed lately they only cover COM and IFM,
respectively.  They're generated from the Synon definitions for COM and IFM,
and don't exist for the non-Synon modules.
