Chuck, our account tries to avoid keying the PF. We have several systems in lightning prone areas and poor power supplied systems and if the system goes down while updating a PF in a batch, one can get duplicate records in the file that are not easy to remove with upddta. We usually have to download a fix program since getting at these duplicates can be difficult to do. We know that it is not supposed to happen since the PF is keyed, but it does. I have heard from one of our vendors that system performance begins to degrade around having nine logicals over a physical, but that may have been propaganda to overlook other flaws in their system. +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
