Equating doesn't "reserve a spot", so I assume you mean dimensioning "reserves a spot" All equating does is, at compile time, it replaces one variable name with another. It has no effect at run time.

Re: Monthly Multivalue Inserts and Speed (Nick Gettino) s John stated we use dimensioned arrays but we also equate each attribute which eserves a spot for the piece of data making it tremendously faster updating.

Here is briefly how the attributes are rganized, a relatively simple example: Attribute 1 is multivalued with our G/L Period, i.e. 12-01 vm 12-02 vm 2-03 etc. Attributes 2 through 30 are dependent on attribute 1 and contain a ariety of dollar amounts that are accumulated for the respective period n attribute 1. At the end of each month, a new G/L Period is inserted into the ultivalued position of attribute 1 as well as each of the respective ultivalued positions in attributes 2 through 30. Nothing complicated. My question is this and is aimed largely at the technicians at Rocket .. If, at the beginning of the year, I were to insert each of the 2-periods into their respective multivalues in attribute 1 and insert espective <null> multivalues into attributes 2 through 30, thus erforming all of the 'inserts' at once, will the processing each month un faster as numbers are simply accumulated into attributes 2 through 0 and no inserting of new multivalues will have to be performed? A couple nuggets of information: This is only an example. In the actual file, these records contain many ther attributes and the records overall are relatively large, averaging engths of about 3,000 according to FILE.STAT These are not my files so reorganizing them is not an option. The heart of this question is, as a (numeric) number is accumulated in n attribute, multivalue or subvalue, what causes the record to stretch' in length, thus presumably impacting performance? I would like to think that numeric information is stored in a more compact' method than strings, thus using less space within the database .. but what I 'like' and what 'is' are often quite different.
