1. The level number for RENAMES will be 66, whereas REDEFINES level numbers will NOT be 66.

2. There is a difference in the COBOL -- RENAMES and REDEFINES are not spelled the same.

3. If you want to differentiate between them in some way other than the source code for the program, you will need to specify exactly what you are looking for.

If you are asking this type of question, you might do better on the Beginners & Students forum, http://www.ibmmainframeforum.com instead of here.

Has anyone?

Yeah, there are couple of programs at this current shop using RENAMES. And these programs are not so old - were written in 2005.
