I've simplified my original post so that the focus is this:
I write twice at the same place in the program using the same FORMAT... once to a keyed file, once to a text file
the results are different
the text file seems to write out the full 1000 bytes
the keyed file seems to write out the first 800 or so bytes, and the remaining 200 bytes are whatever the CLEAR LOCAL value is (spaces or zeros)
I don't know how long this may have been true since the text file is new (just for TRACEING this problem) and the keyed file typically ends in 790.... so if the cutoff were 800, I'd never know it until today.
also.... this is the largest keyed file I have anywhere (in terms of record size), which is another reason
I've attached two files:
1) my current findings
2) the INCLUDE module with the FORMAT statement
apologies in advance for pushing the envelope (of patience, if nothing else :)
Thanx 2 1 & all for all your help and input!
P.S. nothing would make me happier than to see that this is a programming error.... I just can't see that at this time.
