Um, if the reports are identical except for the heading, just define 
     two formats for the heading then use the same report body. Select the 
     proper heading format, and off you go. More work is necessary if these 
     reports are supposed to go to different printers, though.

Yea and No.  Once the programs is created, you can override printer file 
Pick to printer file Pack and the same file definition would be used for 
both.  But you must have both objects to compile so the compiler can read 
the record formats.  But you only need one source file, though you must copy 
Pick to Pack after compiling Pick from source and before compiling the RPG.

Subject: RPG how to use the same printer file twice?
     
     
Is there a way to use the same printer file twice in a RPG program?
     
I've got a picker program that prints both a pick list and a packaging list. 
It currently uses two printer files for barcode support (was originally 
O-specs). Both printer files are identical except for the heading (picklist 
vs packaging). It would be really nice not to maintain the same printer file 
twice, or the same program twice (if you use separate programs, utilizing the 
same printer file)..
     
Thanks!
