You need to look for unique data contained in one of the record formats
that isn't contained in the other.  In my particular case, I know that
a certain field in one of my formats, the header, will contain a *Zero
otherwise it will not be a *Zero.

In another file a different company sends me, in the header record there
will be *Blanks in a certain field where in the body there will be a text
string (container number).

And, yes, you just output ARBuffer.  And read ARFile.

Thanks for the example, Jim.  Upon reading a record from the file, how do you
know which "format" it is?

When you update the record, do you just output ARBuffer?
