Hi,

Field symbol is used to for dynamic usage. Just like pointers concept in "C".It is nothing more than a pointer to a memory area

A field-symblo is a pointer u can dynamically assign to a field.

Memory is allocated to a field-symbol during runtime only.

Assign stmt is used to assign a field to it.

ex:

data f1(3) value 'XYZ'.

FIELD-SYMBOLS <f>.

Assign f1 to <f>.

Hi Uma..

I tried it... and it is possible to use watchpoint for field-symbols once they are assigned...

because to create watchpoint ,, u need to assign it first then u can chagne the value of field-symbols in ur program anytime... and in debugger.. when that value is changed.. watchpoint is reached....

I would suggest u to try it...

Reward if usefulll

Watch point can be used for field symbols only after Assign statement.

Thanks for your valuable suggestions.
