For a report I'm developing, I need to track the top ten quantity and cost
for a department, as well as for the entire report. I have two
identical-in-kind arrays, but I have to process each of them twice (once for
cost, again for quantity). Since the arrays are defined identically, I want
to halve the code: process cost or process quantity, regardless of which
array it is. I feel like there is a solution involving basing the arrays on
a pointer but haven't wrapped my head around it.


Loyd: Why complicate matters by using pointers?

There are two issues:

First, you have two structures with identical layout. You define the
structure layout ONCE. Then, you define two DS arrays using LIKEDS.

Second, you want to have identical code to process the two arrays. That
means you want ONE procedure, where the DS array is passed as a parameter.
