If you had bothered to look at the provided link, you would have noticed several "No Limit"s on FD data areas and WS 01 definitions.....

If your file layout has so many redefines that you are worried about a compiler limit I think you have a design problem.

In Kapil's defense, his post was dated just 4 minutes after Williams', and it's possible that he and William were posting at the same time, only William hit <enter> first. icon_smile.gif
