Hello to all. I am currently writing a report that prints all records for a 
customer from several files. Actually, instead of journalling, my customer 
created an 'audit' file for each of their major files. There are transaction 
types of add, change before, change after and delete. Each audit file has 
different fields, they are carbon copies of their original PF. This report is 
supposed to show only changed fields (with field descriptions), before and 
after. What I am in the process of doing is this:
In the CLP, I DSPFFD to an outfile of all of the files. In the RPG, I read 
this file and load an array with field names and descriptions. I read through 
address book (customer master), and go out to each audit file to see if there 
are changes for that day for that customer. The report has misc header info, 
but the detail is only 4 fields... Type, Field Description, Before, After. If 
there are records in a file for a given day, and it is an add or delete 
record, I just print it in the before or after column. If change, I check 
each field in the change before against the change after record, and print 
only the 'changed' fields. So, far, I have just one file in the RPG, and I am 
in the process of adding about six more. The code is already over 2000 
lines..... At the very least, I am going to need to create a program for 
everyfile, and somehow share the printfile so that each program can write 
detail records to same report. Overall, although this is going to work, I can 
help but think there must be a better way. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, 
especially if you even read this far!!! Kathie
