This worked when i changed this dcl-s ptrXRLA pointer
inz(%addr(rcdXRCL));
to this dcl-s ptrXRLA pointer inz(%addr(rcdXRCL.XRLA01));

ctl-opt option(*srcstmt:*nodebugio:*noshowcpy) dftactgrp(*no)
actgrp(*new);

dcl-f XRCL01 usage(*input:*update ) keyed ;
// File layout for xrcl01
// XRCUST customer number (key)
// XRLSTM last maint date
// XRLA01 label name 1 char(8)
// XRLA02 label name 2 char(8)
// XRLA03 label name 3 char(8)
// XRSET1 label 1 sets dec(2:0)
// XRSET2 label 2 sets dec(2:0)
// XRSET1 label 3 sets dec(2:0)
// ... all array fields all contiguous

dcl-s mycount int( 5:0) ;
dcl-s myCust packed( 6:0) inz(39356) ;

dcl-ds rcdXRCL likerec(XRCREC : *all) ;

dcl-s ptrXRLA pointer inz(%addr(rcdXRCL.XRLA01)) ;

dcl-ds dsXRLA based(ptrXRLA) ;
arXRLA char(8) dim(3) ;
end-ds ;

chain myCust XRCL01 rcdXRCL ;

if not %found() ;
mycount += 1 ;
endif ;

*inlr = *on;
return ;

update XRCREC ; // never happens, insures fields are 'brought-in'

Here's my take...
dcl-ds rcdXRCL likerec(<your rcd format> : *all);
dcl-s ptrXRLA pointer inz(%addr(rcdXRCL));
dcl-ds dsXRLA based(ptrXRLA);
arXRLA char(8) dim(3);
end-ds;
chain 039356 XRCL01 rcdXRCL;
Read the record into the DS. After the chain, arXRLA(<index>) is the
array representation of your file "buckets".
