If you're not comfortable with Python, just use SQL in your favorite tool (ACS, DBeaver, SQL Workbench/J) and query the SYSCOLUMNS table.
You can order by COLUMN_NAME or ORDINAL position as best suits your need. Easy to copy/paste out of those tools or export to a text file.

I thought about using native IO in a sub-procedure just to make this easier... but doesn't the file "stay open"? I have avoided native IO in sub-procedures for so long that I don't' recall all the potential issues.

You can make it USROPN and open/close at will.

Buck, thanks for the suggestion. I often manipulate text strings with Notepad++ for things like this.
I wouldn't know how to use your Python script - I'm clueless here. Would like to learn though.

Much of the Python/PASE discussion seems to happen over on Ryver, but
I'd be happy to work on a thread either in the main Midrange list, or
the Open Source list.
