From the Softcopy:
11.20.14 CLEAR (Clear)

 The CLEAR operation sets elements in a structure (record format, data
structure, array, or table) or a variable (field, subfield, or
indicator),
to zero, blank....

Note that when the CLEAR operation is applied to a record-format name,
only output fields in the record format are affected.....

======= my query =========
==========================
I have a program in which I am using a file as Input/Full procedural, I
am only using one of the files fields as output within the RLU generated
PRTF in my program.  When I do the following:
....
                CLEAR TMISC     <---- Record format name.
        K10     CHAIN FLTMISC           30
....
If my chain is a no hit, this field from the record format above isn't
cleared out.  But if I do this:
....
                CLEAR TMDES6    <---- Individual field within record format.
        K10     CHAIN FLTMISC           30
....            
It is cleared out properly.. What gives?
