redines clause with occurs clause

Postby mahesh77 » Wed Jul 08, 2009 12:39 pm

hey group,

The data description entry for the redefined item cannot contain an OCCURS clause. However, the redefined item can be subordinate to an item whose data description entry contains an OCCURS clause. In this case, the reference to the redefined item in the REDEFINES clause must not be subscripted. Neither the redefined item nor the redefining item, nor any items subordinate to them, can contain an OCCURS DEPENDING ON clause.

can some throw light on this by posting some code on this topic?

Hello,

Neither the redefined item nor the redefining item, nor any items subordinate to them, can contain an OCCURS DEPENDING ON clause.
What about this statement is not clear?

can some throw light on this by posting some code on this topic?
Given that this is not allowed, i'm not sure how someone might post some code :?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
