    Hummmm... Not sure I understand the question. You would define the *LDA on the "D" specs. So, what does /FREE have to do with it? Phil

    Could you show us a couple things you tried along with any errors? A *LDA rarely has an external description at many sites and I haven't worked where any were used in the past decade. I have ideas and can run some tests, but it'd be easier if I knew ahead of time what won't work and why not. Tom
