It's a DDS printer file and I want some fields that in a qualified data
structure. A field name like QFDS.FIELDNAME is too long.

The easy way is to use Prefix on the program's F-spec e.g. Prefix ('QFDS.') and that will take care of the transfer of data from/to the DS.

There are long names definable in DDS (ALIAS is the keyword I think or something similar) but while they can be used in COBOL and SQL they cannot be used in RPG. So even if you had found this keyword and used long names in the DDS it wouldn't have helped.
