Hi,

is there any way to use a user-definable fieldname for setting up something 
like an If-Then-feature? For example, in a Query definition you can select 
records by typing

        FIELDA   EQ   'something'

and Query interprets FIELDA as a database field. I'd like to use something 
like that in an own program but have no idea how to access the real database 
field with only having it's name in a variable. 

I want to create user defined if-then-clauses in my RPG program (something 
like if-user-enters-'A'-in-FLDA-move-'X'-FLDB). Using a SELEC statement and 
many FLDNAM WHEQ 'FIELDA' is exactly not what I'd like to do...

Any hints?

Bye, Christian
