Greg,
Let me spare you the disappointment, Report Designer does NOT do AFPDS
only row/column reports

Ha Ha... I just never took the time to learn how to use the Report
Designer. I was afraid it may screw up some of my existing reports (i.e
AFPDS Invoices, Pick Tickets, etc. containing page segments etc.).

The real reason is that we almost never create printed output anymore.
Most of the output is XLS, XML, or HTML.

But I'm going to give a try now. I promise.

Greg,

Why don't you use RDI Report Designer? I assume you have RDI, because
you on the RDI message group list here. <Big Smile>

I am one of the weird ones, I used to LOVE RLU too. Although I like RDI
much better. RLU had HUGE learning curve.

My only minor complain, is in RLU it is easier to move the fields with
function keys. In RDI you have to use the mouse. Or change the
properties for the Column. Which I like slightly better.

No doubt about it, there is a learning curve. But, once you get it, it
is awesome! Just like RLU, but much better!

More screen real estate, and you can stay in the designer to compile
your code too!

Often I toggle to the LPEX view, and change the line columns there. Just
easier for me.

Ya well... I'm still using RLU

Yes, I know **free. I look at TR's as Christmas from IBM, and I always
check out what's new. The couple I missed after the last 7.1 TR was
torture. At 7.3 now, so Christmas is back on!

All my new code is **free, but the others here won't ever give up their
internal print files.

Justin,

Just in case you do not know, **free, means Absolute NO Punch-card specs
at all. Hence the 100% Free-format.
O-Specs are a punch-card spec, hence not allowed. <grin>

But, that also blocks GOTO/CABXX/MOVE/MOVEA/etc... too!

**free is 100% Freedom from 19th Century Punch-Cards! It is 100%
FREEDOM! Let it RING through the RPG-World! <Big Smile>

I wrote a program to move the Punch-card Sequence numbers to right Hand
Comments.

So, my cold code might have looked like this:

C007 x +=1 ;

After my conversion:

X += 1; // C007

C007 is a sample of change code tag. Which is a holdover from
punch-cards...

My boss is a Microsoft programmer, and so are all my teammates. They
keep asking me why do you marked code? Don't you have a previous version
to compare to for changes? Yes, we have Turnover, which has archive and
source comparison. But, it is still company policy to mark changed lines
of code.

Oh well, the IBM i world is slow to change. Even through **free has been
out for over 4-years. Which is a LONG time in computer years...

No wonder why the call the IBM i the "Univac Punch-card 400"...
<disappointment> Very bad if you are still coding like it is System-36
from last Century :( So, although we have no system-36 code, but it is
very hard to take the Punch-Card mentality out of the Punch-Card lovers.
Oh well...
