I use pointer notation to reference records in a handle, so I was sorry
to see that

EDIT$(222+n)= USING "###.###" ; Fptr&.someVal#   (FBII)

doesn't work in FB^3.  You need a string as a go-between.

a$ = USING "###.###" ; Fptr&.someVal#            (FB^3)
EDIT$(222+n)= a$

I'd sure like to be able to continue using the first structure.
