A little more - there is no such thing as an index on an object (stream
file, actually) in the IFS.

A possible exception to that statement is if you use Omnifind, which can
take the contents of a stream file and make it searchable just as in
Google.

That is a no-charge product on IBM i in more current releases, and there
are ways to use it in SQL.

Actually it is not DB2 that has this restriction = it is the SQL
standard that does not allow CREATE INDEX over a view. And I'm not sure
if CREATE INDEX can be done over a PF that does not have DDS source -
CRTPF with RCDLEN only.

HTF.COM - when you say 'txt', are you speaking of a text file in the
IFS
or of a file member of type TXT - that'd have to be a source file, I
think.

You can't do anything directly with SQL views or LFs over IFS files - as
Gary says, you create a DDS file - and I'll add, CREATE TABLE in SQL can
do the same.

I have to say, I think the terms you are using are mixed up - so please
clarify whether IFS or source files or whatever you are looking at.

Thanks

You could copy/convert the .txt file to a dds file that is keyed.
