Paul,  The following compiles fine on V5R1, so the field reference file may
not be your problem (PTF's aside).
A            @FLDA     R           1  2REFFLD(FLDA LIB/REFFIL)
A            @FLDB     R           1  2REFFLD(FLDA LIB/REFFIL)
The error message you receive indicates the same field name is specified in
the same record format starting in pos 19.
Can you post the record format code ?
-Dave K.

Subject: What's this all about?

> I'm confused. I've just started working on a client's new V5R1 machine,
and I'm trying to compile a printer file in which the output fields point to
various fields in a field reference file. For consistency sake, all of the
quantity fields in the printer file point to the same field in the FRF. The
compile fails with the message CPD5237 Field or ALIAS name specified more
than once in a record.
