In all cases the record id for a file designates whether or not the record is considered "active". BPCS/Lx doesn't (in most cases) hard delete the records from the respective files. When you use action code 4=delete the system will change the record id from i.e. "IM" in the item master file to "IZ".
I would say the 90% of the files have the Z in the second position of the record id. The rest of the files have the "Z" in the first position of the record id.
When the files were defined when BPCS was created the first character (in the 90% rule) of the record id was the first letter in the file name. i.e. IIM=item master and the record id is IM.
Hope that this helps.
