Jon,

Here's a portion of the dds for the file. CDIAG is 8 bytes character, CPOA is 1 byte character
.
.
.
A HDIAG1 R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 1')
A REFFLD(CDIAG)
A HDIAG1POA R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 1 POA')
A REFFLD(CPOA)
A HDIAG2 R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 2')
A REFFLD(CDIAG)
A HDIAG2POA R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 2 POA')
A REFFLD(CPOA)
A HDIAG3 R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 3')
A REFFLD(CDIAG)
A HDIAG3POA R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 3 POA')
A REFFLD(CPOA)
A HDIAG4 R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 4')
A REFFLD(CDIAG)
A HDIAG4POA R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 4 POA')
A REFFLD(CPOA)
.

A HDIAG18 R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 18')
A REFFLD(CDIAG)
A HDIAG18POA R TEXT('DIAGNOSIS 18 POA')
A REFFLD(CPOA)

Can you show an extract from the actual record layout Duane - I'm having trouble visualizing what you're trying to do.

Barbara (or other excellent explainer),

This is a great feature. Except it's not working as I imagined it and as Jon Paris "exampled" it in his article in The Four Hundred: Guru: 7.4 Brings New RPG Goodies.

I've tried to work this one in on my 7.3 and am having a difficult time adjusting it to work.

My example tries to redefine a record format where 18 sets of an 8 byte character followed by a 1 byte character:

dcl-f history1 usage(*input); // rcdfmt(hst1)
dcl-ds ds_hst1 likerec(hst1) ;
dcl-ds ar_hst1 extname('HISTORY1' : 'HST1') qualified; diag1_set
like(hdiag1) samepos(hdiag1); dcl-ds set_diag dim(18)
samepos(hdiag1);
hdiag like(hdiag1);
hdiagpoa like(hdiag1poa);
end-ds;
end-ds;

when compiling, I get:
RNF3523: External description SET_DIAG for data structure is not found; data structure is ignored.

My outline (RDi) shows that SET_DIAG has the correct elements.

I did get it to work as advertised on a single field array.

Any suggestions?

The one thing this one can't do easily Joe is to create an array from non-contiguous fields - that you'll still have to use the DS/Overlay approach for.


If they were all the same distance apart, you could define a data structure array with all the repeated fields.

dcl-ds ds;
x char(5);
a1 packed(3);
b1 char(5);
a2 packed(5);
b2 char(5);
a3 char(5);
b3 char(5);
dcl-ds a_b_array dim(3) samepos(a1);
a like(a1);
b like(b1);
end-ds;
