mmmmmm,,,, I see. I understood the file to be externally described but you were redefining the file layout in the program.

Actually, opening as program-described because (beyond the first few fields) the layout is unknown at compile time, and varies from one installation to another. Current version of the program uses externally-described mode, and has to be recompiled every time the database layout changes; trying to eventually release a version that doesn't care.
