Just another quick question from a guy who'd really rather not have to fart around with this stuff.... :) I'm converting a bunch of flat file FMTDTA stuff to use OPNQRYF instead. when reading a file in cobol that's been sorted via opnqryf, is there anything I need to worry about as far as COBOL syntax? this is what I have: OVRDBF FILE(HISTRY4) SHARE(*YES) OPNQRYF FILE((HISTRY4)) QRYSLT( + 'HPEROD *EQ ' *CAT &PERIOD *BCAT + '*AND LMRKTC *NE "00" + *AND HITEM *NE 0') + KEYFLD((HITEM) (LMRKTC)) and in my cobol: SELECT HISTRY4 ASSIGN TO DATABASE-HISTRY4 ORGANIZATION IS INDEXED ACCESS MODE IS SEQUENTIAL RECORD KEY IS EXTERNALLY-DESCRIBED-KEY FILE STATUS IS FILE-STATUS-01. OPEN INPUT HISTRY4 READ HISTRY4 AT END MOVE "Y" TO EOF-HISTRY4. CLOSE HISTRY4 If I'm missing something obvious, I'd appeciate the heads up - I'm particularly concerned about the ACCESS MODE and RECORD KEY clauses of the SELECT Statement. - indexed, sequential with external key - (not the file's natural key) I'm changing a ton of these, and I won't have a chance to test till I'm done, and I'd like to get it right the first time. Thanks a ton, Rick
