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.

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?
