88 level could be used .

you can use 88 level in the file FD decleration as below

01 NCE-FEED.
05 DER-INFO.
10 MAINT-TYPE PIC X(02) VALUE SPACES.
88 W-OFER VALUE '01'.
88 NEW-VOR-REC VALUE '21'.
88 DELE-ITM-REC VALUE '33'.

while writing the file you can populate the other fields in normal way.
for 88 level you can do
set DELE-ITM-REC to true .

by this you will get '33' populated in the output file / layout

thanks

A level 66 can be used in an FD, but not to rename an 01 level, but then a 66 can NEVER be used for that.

Sorry for miss communication . I understand that we can not rename 01 level in FD entry, but can we rename Group Item ?
