If you create a data structure in your program with your screen fields (QN001, 
QN002...) overlaying the same area as your array, you won't need to MOVE the 
data:

D DataStruc       DS                                 
D  QN                             30    DIM(6)         
D  QN001                        30    OVERLAY(QN:  1)
D  QN002                        30    OVERLAY(QN: 31)
D  QN003                        30    OVERLAY(QN: 61)
D  QN004                        30    OVERLAY(QN: 91)
D  QN005                        30    OVERLAY(QN:121)
D  QN006                        30    OVERLAY(QN:151)

(The same can be accomplished in RPG-III by specifying starting/ending 
locations).

Whenever you change QN001, you will have also changed QN,1, and vice-versa.

Hope this helps,

Subject:        RPG400 SDA query?

Hi all,
I am building a AS400 SDA screen and on this screen I am going to have
an array (6 elements / 30 characters each) displayed.  Well wanting to
take advantage of the EXFMT opcode to write my screen, I am not able to
give any of my SDA screen fields names like this -- QN,1 or QN,2.. I
have a hard time believing that I must still do a MOVE of the array
elements into the hard named screen names like this:
MOVE  QN,1   QN001
MOVE  QN,2   QN002
Etc....
Any suggestions to this former S36'er appreciated.
