We can use redifine in file section and also at any level. Redifine is just the method of representing thr data in different formats. But the only clause is that lenght of the redefining field should be less than or equal to the lenght of the redifined field.

Redefines clause can not be used in File section, it is only used in working- storage section. level no will be 01-49, not 66 and 88. In 02-49 we can only redefines with same storage space.In 01 level we can redefines with lower storage space not exceds the oroginal storage space.

the redefines clause certainly can be used in the file section.  within a record description it can be used as many times and as many places as you want/need.  the only trick is that there is no redefines clause allowed at the 01 level like is allowed in working storage. Just code multiple 01 levels in the FD for the file and each one is automatically a redefines of the record in the buffer. You can do it at the 01 level, you just don't say REDEFINES.

You can't use redefine clause in the file section at 01 level. It can be used in the working storage section at 01 level.
