I am coding to populate the fields of a file that my program creates with the help of a copy book. The program is in REXX and it reads the length of the record and each field and accordingly populates the output file with default values according to the pic clause.CAN ANY ONE HELP ME with the code.

Maybe. Show us what you've done, what you want to do, where you're having a problem. You know, the usual required details.

Why re-invent the wheel?
4.0 IEBDG (Test Data Generator) Program

for an IBM stock utility, it is very flexible.

Since you don't know anything about REXX, the learning curve for a utility program (that works!) will be much smaller.

Hi,

We use File-AID Data Solutions - it is a tool from Compuware. It looks and feels very much like the standard File-AId product. Have a look to see if it is available on your box.

It uses standard copybook layout templates together with our own parameters (e.g. data ranges, field masks, etc) and can create test data very quickly. We used to copy data from Live systems but this practice was stopped last year. File-AID Data Solutions does everything we need.

Cheers.

Sam.

FileAid is incredibly useful. There's also FileAid Data-Ager which is great for - d'oh - aging data...

If you're determined to do it in REXX though, drop me a PM and I'd be glad to quote you a price icon_smile.gif

Cheers
