yes, it does.
Let's take an example and suppose we have the following LF
R    RFILE1    PFILE(PF01)
A    K    Field01
A    K    Field02
R    RFILE2    PFILE(PF02)
A    K    Field01
A    K    Field02
R    RFILE3    PFILE(PF03)
A    K    Field01
A    K    Field02
(the three PF share the same key structure ).
Your Cobol program is able to read such an LF with SEQUENTIAL, DYNAMIC and RANDOM Access as with a normal one. Remember that COBOL/400 supplies the register variable DB-FORMAT-NAME which hosts the name of the last format read.
Let me know if it's clear enough.
Yours sincerely.

Oggetto: Non-Join multi-PF logical file format

Can a COBOL program work with a non-join logical file record format which references more than one PF (more than one PF in the DDS PFILE entry) ?  I know RPG programs can NOT compile if they reference such a file.  Thanks.
