Reader Feedback and Insights: Copying Records in RPG
September 6, 2002 Timothy Prickett Morgan
I’m writing about the August 23 Midrange Guru Tech Tips regarding moving records between files with different field names. One option that I didn’t see, and the one I now prefer, with RPG IV is using the prefix keyword to rename the fields from one of the files.
