James,

Unforunately, I am not aware of any way to suppress the level 0 records on a 
Query/400 summary output file.  And there could easily be ++++++ dates at other 
levels.

I don't think a four digit year will help, because, the customer is summarizing 
the file by date.  That means that the grand total record does not have a valid 
date.

Perhaps Query/400 is not the best way to summarize a file.  I would recommend 
using SQL, Query Manager, or Format Data to summarize the file.

Anyway, I will try to replicate this problem tomorrow and see if I can update 
the file.

Regarding the origin of the file (apparently through 
Query/400), I have this from the customer:

> The file is a dump of a physical file with report summary
> function count on date. So output file contains all
> summarized records with break level 1 and a final
> summarized record break level 0 with datepost field as
> ++++++.
. . .
> Do not know how this can be avoided.

I reiterated my suggestion that he use a 4-digit year date 
format in the query (not even knowing if this is possible 
in Query/400), but if anybody else has a better idea, I'll 
be happy to pass it on.
