    Lots of good suggestions here.

    Several people have asked why we want to do this. As Tom has guessed, the
    issue is a need for widely variable amounts of storage. We have a series of
    DC-COBOL programs that pass data to and from each other. The size of the
    data varies from tiny to huge. There is no upper limit, other than the
    amount of storage available. Scratch and queue records require defining the
    maximum size in the program, which is not practical in this case. So we use
    storage instead. I would like to do something similar with ADS dialogs so
    that they can communicate with the DC-COBOL programs.
