I have a file that I need to input and reformat. I have declared public types for the layout of the file(ex: mypublictype). the file is fixed length, not delimited. Once I have declared the type, I open the file for input and get a record. What I am presently doing is defining each field using mid statements. What I would like to do is have a command that say Input #1, mypublictype
and this command will break the record into fields based on my type declaration. What I have found is that I can't do this because my file is not comma delimited. Is there any way around this? I can submit code if this is confusing.
