LEN(@RECORD) is a sufficient answer to the underlying question.  I had 
remembered "LEN" and couldn't recall the "@RECORD".

Thank you.

In the DICT, in an I-descriptor you can specify LEN(@RECORD) If the record has 
zero length it's empty.

Is there an easy way to determine if a record is empty?

I have a saved list of a thousand or more records that have record ID's that 
interfere with our Ellusian database.

If they are truly empty, I can do house cleaning on them.  If they contain any 
data, I have to do a different process.

When I AE into a record I get
:AE PERSON 2362
Top of "2362" in "PERSON", 0 lines.

So, it is really empty.

I believe there must be a better way than handling every one of them, but I 
have been away from Unidata and forgotten everything.
