Hi there, I have a MASTER with an OCCURS segment.

I just want to print the first occurrence. I see how to define it no problem, just don't know how to reference it.

Basically I want to do something like this:
TABLE FILE
PRINT A(1)
END

You can add a logical field to your OCCURS segment with ACTUAL=ORDER and then issue
IF ORDER EQ 1

Thanks. So this IF just prints out the first occurrence of the field.

This doesn't interfere with the row selection criteria I assume?
