Hello,

may be, i m wrong..

but it may be that, i m right.....
Unfortunately, you are incorrect. . .

Source code or utility control statements might be continued with a "continuation marker" - data is not.

And this question is about data. And the original reply still stands - the record length should be increased to accomodate this. Or possibly go to variable length records. . . Either could require considerable re-work as everything using the file must be changed.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hello,

If you increase the lrecl, you can use f11 to scroll the data to the right (f10 scrolls the data to the left).

There is no "other page". It is all the same data - what has changed is the columns displayed. Look at the top right of the screen which shows the data line in the file and the columns that are currently displayed on the screen.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
