Connie,

You can't use the filename with the subst opcode (or with any other
opcode except for file-handling ones).

You're getting a "field or indicator not defined" error because the
compiler expects a field name at that point in the code.

What you should do is create an externally-defined data structure based
on the file.  Reading the file will automatically populate the DS
subfields with the data from the record.  You can then replace
<FILENAME> with <DS-name> in your code.

Oh, and could you drop the HTML in your postings, please?

Cheers,

Martin.
