Why did you start this topic while it's still being discussed at the sort forum?

Well, it would seem the TS regards the aid he has received in Easytrieve (where this foolishness started) and/or DFSORT as inadequate. It seems to me the TS wants a completed solution and expects to get one here.

Until you have responded satisfactorily to the last question posed in your DFSort topic this topic is locked.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
