hi...i have a 20 position alpha cust# field. we have a truncation issue with scanners, so sometimes the number comes in with the 1st number truncated. we get no hit, and treat it as a new customer. i want to build a logical file, and i think i need to create 3 new fields: the first field would be sst(2 19) of the customer #, the second would be sst(20 1) of the cust# (usually a blank), the third concat(firstfield secondfield) so i get a 20 position field to use as the key. When i use (USE I) (input) on the SST, it compiles, but once i add the concat, it bombs with Field not found - A CDCUS2 CONCAT(CDCUSM1 CDCUSL1)
CPD7926-* . when i have (USE blank) on the sst, it bombs with CPD7552- on the SST lines.
