Hi Theresa,

Yes, there's not too much to it. Below is a snip of code from one of our old

archive programs. The file ARVTAPE and ARVTAP1 are tape files and are
created 
with CRTTAPF.  If you need help with the tapf, you can contact me directly. 


     FARVTAPE IF  F     103            SEQ                            UC 
     FARVTAP1 IF  F     160            SEQ                            UC 

hth,

Hello all,
     
Has anyone come up with a way to directly process records from a tape 
through an RPG or CL program?  We're looking for a way to save/archive 
records from a large file on the AS/400 to tape and then, at a later time, 
we would like to be able to read through the records on the tape with 
specific processing.  We're a converted mainframe shop and we know how to 
do this from that standpoint, but don't know if this possible on the 
AS/400.  We really don't want to use SAVLIB and RSTLIB due to the volume of 
records we're anticipating putting onto tape.
     
Thanks,
Theresa Luebeck
