I had given OCCURS 2 for an example. But in my original copybook layout, there are 3 to 4 arrays defined with more number of occurrences(like 50 to 75) & fields(10 to 20) of different lengths. _________________ Thanks,
I think where there are multiple data-items in an OCCURS, I'd make them all the same FIXEDLEN (the longest, of course).
When BUILDing with the PARSEd parameters, i'd leave some blanks for all the PARSEd fields which needed to be shortened, and then place those long fields in a temporary extension to your record. Then use OVERLAY to put the first n bytes of each of those fields into the correct place. Finally ensure the record is cut down to the desired size.
