Reply with quote

I'm creating a panel which looks like this
Code:

  ddname       file     disp parameters
1 ______    ________   __ __ ___
2 ______    ________   __ __ ___
3 ______    ________   __ __ ___
4 ______    ________   __ __ ___


Is it possible to decalre these fields like ddname 1, 2 3 and 4 as array variables?

Thanks

But it is possible to convert them to stem variables during the REXX process.

testing with a panel will take too much time
but here is a code snippet that will assign variables with panel compliant names to stem variables and the other way around

Code:
a1 = "za1"
a2 = "za2"
a3 = "za3"
a4 = "za4"
a5 = "za5"
a6 = "za6"

/* assign a1-6 to stem var */
do   i = 1 to 6
   interpret "a.i = a"i
   say i a.i
end

/* assign stem var to b1-6 */
do   i = 1 to 6
   interpret "b"i "= a.i"
end

say 1 b1
say 2 b2
say 3 b3
say 4 b4
say 5 b5
say 6 b6
