Redefined and redefining groups are from different copybooks

Redefined and redefining groups are from different copybooks

Hi,

I have copybook1 with the following:

05 group1
05 group2 REDEFINES group1

I have copybook2 that contains the following:

05 newgroup

Can I do the following given that the redefining and redefined groups are from different copybooks?
05 group2 REDEFINES newgroup

Thanks in advance.

RE: Redefined and redefining groups are from different copybooks

I do not think so - if I understand what you are saying. The REDEFINE has to immediately follow the the group/variable that it is redefining. And why didn't you try it and find out for yourself?

Depending on exactly what you want (and my interpretation), it sounds feasable.

It will probably help if you post what the compiler would see if this was all done inline (without copybooks).

As Nic mentioned, it would be easy (and free - with no wait<g>) to run a test on your system.

I was assigned to design the program and while I have view authority on the mainframe I don't think I have compile authority. I'll try to find one of the project developers to test it.

Thanks for the advice.
