Hi,

I have an requirement in which I have to expand the copybook layout with the starting position and the length of each field. Similart to option 8 in fileaid. Is it possible to save the view record layout for the copybook I view through fileaid.

SAMPLE layout:

--------- FIELD LEVEL/NAME ---------- -PICTURE- -NUMBER START END
01 TMP-REC 1 23
05 TMP-NO 999 1 1 3
05 TMP-NAME X(10) 2 4 13
05 TMP-ADDR X(10) 3 14 23
******************************* BOTTOM OF DATA ************************

After 5 years here you do not know how to use the code tags? Or could you just not be bothered? If the latter then I cannot be bothered with a suggested solution.

On both the Quick Reply and Post Reply screens there is a "Code" button; clicking it inserts a Code tag at the cursor. Both screens also have "Close Tags". Text in Code tags looks like this:
Code:
Note that a fixed font is used and that
multiple spaces  used    for        alignment
are preserved.

Is there some reason that copy & paste won't work?

Assuming that you cannot copy-and-paste as suggested by Mr. Giegerich, have you considered compiling the copybook in a skeleton program and then parsing the DMAP?

Hi Akatsukami,
I will try this approach and get back. I was just wondering is there any way i can view the source code for the option 8 in file aid. I guess it is coded in REXX.

I am also trying if i can do the same using REXX.

Search for the 01 level you are interested in. Get the item name from the DATA NAME column; the starting position is the STRUCTURE (converted to decimal) plus 1. The length can be gotten from the ASMBLR DATA DEFINITION column (one displacement to another will not be accurate in the case of synchronized structures). The type (denoting picture and usage) is in the DATE TYPE column: DISPLAY = X(n); DISP-NUM = 9(n); BINARY = USAGE COMP; PACKED-DEC = COMP-3 (in this case, remember that n bytes hold 2n-1 digits.

Thanks Akatsukami. It worked, i am able to expand the copy book.
I had to code a REXX program using the idea you suggested.

Thanks again.

why not use the RLPRINT function of batch File Aid which was designed to do what you wanted in the first place?
