If what you want to do is add the member name to the first line of the member then you can retrieve the member currently being edited, get the first line, add the member name to that line (remember to truncate the original line as ithe edited line will have to have the same record length), rewrite the line and exit the member - all by invoking edit on the member with an initial macro doing the preceding. Are yo sure that you can lose 8 or more bytes from the first line? _________________ Regards
