  • RPG: Is it possible to redefine an array in a file?

    I'm using RPG III and I need to store a big array in a file. It says the maximum fieldlength is 256 so I defined the file with 16 fields of 250 characters long for each. Can I put the 1000 values of an array into the 16 fields without moving? Just like REDEFINES in COBOL?Thanks for all the help!
