(SOLVED)Read Multiple Records from SAVE File
Here's a snippet of code that runs correctly in 8008 but not in my test 8204 environment. Any ideas as to what I need to do differently, aside from doing this in several steps? It does work fine when only using one field. Thanks

  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;

 TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
 CNT.COUNTRY
 CNT.MODEL
 ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
 ON TABLE SAVE
 END
-*
-RUN
-READ SAVE &COUNTRY.5.&MODEL.5.
-RUN
TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL

Code tightening must have gotten you. This works


TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
CNT.COUNTRY
CNT.MODEL
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-*
-RUN
-READ SAVE &COUNTRY.A5. &MODEL.A5.
-RUN
-TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL

Boy, I had to look really hard for the difference. One space does make all the difference. Thanks

Try this instead, won't have to botter with "spaces" :-)
TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
 CNT.COUNTRY
 CNT.MODEL
 ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
 ON TABLE HOLD
 END
-RUN
-READFILE HOLD
-RUN
-TYPE &COUNTRY &MODEL

Yes, thank you. I was just discussing that here at the office after I posted. I like this method Smiler
