I really can't believe IBM didn't take that last step to figure out how to
put values from the descriptor into a generic sized variable. Let me define
variables of 32K (or whatever) for chars, 13,15 for decimals, etc. and be
able to use them generically.

Why don't you read the answers? That's what "SET DESCRIPTOR" is made for!!!

D*B

PS: the problem is not dynamic allocating memory! The problem is to bring data of one type to another type with a language ("RPG") which is dealing under the coever with binary data.
