Hi,

I have a file-aid copybook with multiple 01 items (for e.g. each 01 item for header, detail and trailer record type). Sample copybook is show below.

Code:


 01  WS-HEADER-REC.                                 
     05 H-RECORD-CDE                      PIC X(02).
     05 H-FILE-DATE                       PIC X(10).
     05 FILLER                            PIC X(88)
 01  WS-DETAIL-REC.                                 
     05 D-RECORD-CDE                      PIC X(02).
     05 D-XXX                             PIC 9(16).
     05 D-YYY                             PIC X(40).
     05 FILLER                            PIC X(42).
 01  WS-TRAILER-REC.                               
     05 T-RECORD-CDE                      PIC X(02).
     05 T-RECORD-CNT                      PIC 9(09).
     05 FILLER                            PIC X(89).



If I try to open the file using the file-aid, it opens with the first 01 level item (WS-HEADER-REC). I had used a command in the past to switch to any 01 level item in the copybook. However, I had forgot the command now. Please share the command to toggle betweem multiple 01 items.

Thanks.

Could anyone help me to

I don't have File-Aid at this current shop but as far as I can recall, possibly you needed XREF. Possibly search the File-Aid manuals on this word and you might just get it.

Thanks, Anuj.

We can use XREF and view the file on a specific layout.

I found the command to view the file on different 01 level's without using XREF. If we type the command - 'USE' in VFMT/FMT mode, we can choose the required layout from 'List of AVailable Record Layouts' screen.

Code:


File-AID ---- LIST OF AVAILABLE RECORD LAYOUTS -------------    REQUEST CANCELLED
COMMAND ===>                                                        SCROLL ===>    CSR 
            Member                                                             
  S    Nbr  name       01-level Name                  Status                   
 ---   --- --------  ------------------------------   ------------------------
                  1 TESTCPY1  WS-HEADER-REC                    CURRENT MAP             
                  2 TESTCPY1  WS-DETAIL-REC                                             
                  3 TESTCPY1  WS-TRAILER-REC
