What is a "field"? If you meant bytes, say bytes. Otherwise you need to define the starting byte and length of what you want to copy because mainframes work with records and not fields.

DO NOT POST THE SAME QUESTION ON DIFFERENT FORUMS AT THE SAME TIME

the people answering there are the same answering here
https://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?p=351444#351444

the other topic will be deleted by a moderator

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
