Hi, thank you! Yes, I realize it's doing what I told it too...just not what I'm expecting!!

I appreciate everyone's help! I have resolved this issue and it was due to my program that calls the procedure passing in a variable called wZeros in order to only pass an initial value of zeros. Therefore the procedure was using that space for the two variables! Oooops!

Thanks again for your help!

The system is only doing what you told it to.

Post the d-specs that define the varibles being passed, the prototype and the interface for the procedure, along with the actual call and we'll try to figure out what you did wrong.

Subject: Two variables...one memory location

I am calling a procedure that passes in 12 parameters. Two of these
parms are populated within the procedure and the new values are passed
back to the calling pgm. These two variables, when testing, are using
the same memory address in the system. As soon as one is assigned a
new value they both are updated with the new value.

I have changed the order of the parameters, re-compiled, logged off
and other various means of trying to resolve the address issue. Can
anyone tell me why the system might be assigning these two variables
the same memory location or a way to avoid this?
