Jon,

Once I qualified it it worked (note qualified has to follow the extname())

Bummer - I'd forgotten that it did indicators like that. What i don't
understand though is why the same thing did not happen with LikeRec.

This approach looks as if it will work though.

dcl-ds playds extname('XREF0010DF':'SFL1': *Output);
Ind51 extfld('*IN51');
end-ds;

You do have to rename _all_ indicator fields or the compile will fail of
course.

Jon,

Well it sounded like a good idea...and RDi likes it...but the compiler
doesn't. PMR time I suppose....

dcl-ds origEstData extname('SD1405P':'ORIGEST':*OUTPUT);
hideApprovalContactInfo ind pos(1);
doubleSpace ind pos(2);
end-ds;

128600 dcl-ds origEstData extname('SD1405P':'ORIGEST':*OUTPUT);

Could you perhaps use ExtName instead of LikeRec? A DS created in that
way can have fields added to it, which would allow you to use Overlay to
name the indicator fields.

OK,

So for those on midrange-l, you might have saw my post about SCS spool
files.

My "it's not working" ended up being caused by the fact I was using a
LIKEREC() DS to write to the printer file; the indicators used by the
record are included in the LIKEREC() DS.

I had forgotten (maybe never realized) this.

so now I've got
dcl-ds myrec likerec(MYPRTFR);

myrec.IN32 = *ON;
write myprtfr myrec;

Except, I'm not fond of the IN32 :)

Is there anyway give that indicator a name?

I realize I could use INDDS() on the f-spec; But this is an existing
program and I'd rather not have to retrofit names onto the other
indicators
right now.

Declaring a standalone variable based on the %addr(myrec.in32) would be
one
solution I suppose. But I'd need one for every indicator used. Or
perhaps
since the indicators are at the start of the LIKEREC() DS I could just
use
it's address...

Any other ideas?

Thanks!
Charles
