Hans & Mark

I asked for this about 6-8 years ago.    I believe (can anyone verify this)
that you could do that
with RPGII on the Sys/34-36.    

It kinda happens now already if you think about it, If a field is on a DB
file, DSP file, and a D/S  
It's almost like having three different quasi structures with the same
variable name with 
the same value.   Right ?

The pain is having an Externally defined DS and wanting to use that same
field in another
structure and have them all stay in sync.
