I would like to chain to a subfile record in FREE format.   I have done it is regular RPG, but get a compile error when I attempt it in the FREE.  Is this allowed?

I've attached a sample and error message.  

Thank You in advance!

Hi, Lynn,

The parentheses are confusing the compiler.  They make it think that you are supplying a list of key fields instead of a RRN.  Try this instead:

CHAIN X SF1FIL;

Also, X needs to be a numeric variable with zero decimal positions.

PS - Suggest you post into the code window instead of creating a Word doc.  Many people (me included) don't like to open Word docs off the internet, and it might limit the number of responses you get.
