I have been asked to write several programs using some files that have 536 amount type fields as well as some key fields(The amount field are all identically defined). I need to get the 536 fields into an array. Code wise the only way I see to do it is create a data structure with the first field being a DIM(536) and then the rest of the array would be the actual names of the 536 fields. When I do my read the fields would get populated and then I could use the DIM field. I'm sure there is an easier way to create this Data Structure / Array but I am not sure how. Does someone have a better way????
Thanks in advance
