OR the OP had the U in place, unknowingly. I spose.

THe OP program specified UDS -- that's an auto IN data structure. Yes the
OP was doing an IN, but for no reason.

I think you have some superfluous code there, Shane.

Your existing code could be written as this single line:

D ADS EUDS EXTNAME(FILE)

- the "U" in column 23 assumes a Data Area Data Structure and reads in
the *DTAARA ADS at the start of the program - no need for DEFINE or IN.

The equivalent free format would look like:

Dcl-DS ADS EXTNAME('FILE') Dtaara(*Auto) End-DS;


Brian, that would make the program behave differently. It would be
equivalent to IN *LOCK at the beginning of the program and OUT at the
end. Shane's program was just doing an IN, without lock and without any
change of the data area.
