Only once Mark but I am hoping to avoid doing the end-free .....I would
like to keep it simple.
I think the DS suggestion will work.....and I appreciate you and the
others that made the suggestion.....Thanks

Subject: Re: MOVEA in Free format

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, Doug:

You could define a data structure with a 20a field and the 20 element
array, both defined in the same starting position (overlay-defined), or
define them both as "based" ...

Or, just use:

/end-free
C MOVEA CRL @CRLIN
/free

It is "ugly" but it works, right? ;-) (How often do you need to do
MOVEA in your code?)

See: http://forums.systeminetwork.com/isnetforums/showthread.php?t=41918

(Excerpt follows, in case you do not have a membership):

D ds
D Text 10
D Arr3 1 dim(10) overlay(text:1)

D Arr1 s 1 dim(10)
D Arr2 s 1 dim(10)
D Txt1 s 10

/free
// Move one array to another
Arr2 = Arr1; Arr2 will be the same as Arr1

// Move a single string to array elements
Text = Txt1; // Arr3 will contain the original chars

// Move an array to a single string
Txt1 = Text; Txt1 will contain all the elements of Arr3

Cheers,

Mark
