Hi Vidhu,
Yes you can define two 01 levels but see to that the total bytes defined equals the length of file (in case of FB).

you can use the redefines clause and redefine the same record. But the total length of the record should be the same(if FB is used)

But not in the file section, only working storage.

Unless you use variable or undefined.

Hello,

If your file is Fixed Length and there are multiple level-01s, you have specified redefinition and the length of each must be the same. Within a single FD, you do not code the "redefines" - it is automatically generated. If you look at the compiler output, you will see that each 01 begins at the same address.

If your 01s are not the same size, you have defined a variable length file. The beginning address will be the same, but the total length will differ.
