I don't think I'm confused. Here is a failed compile of a Data structure
array that is not qualified.

      1 Darr              S              1    dim(10)

      2 Dfld              S             10    based(p_arr)

      3 D x               s             10i 0

      4 DdsARr            DS                  dim(10)

To do this the datastructure do not have to be qualified; that is a myth. I
think you are confused with the OVERLAY keyword, available since V3R2M0.

Rob's example is the way I would do this and I am doing it this way, at
