You can specify the record format name in lieu of *ONLY if you like to practise your typing. There is only one record format in a physical so *ONLY works just fine. >Is this something that would be used for a non-described, >multi-format file (i.e., S/36-style Header & Detail formats >combined into one file)? Nope. It's use is for logical files. Read the title of the parameter in help: "Record format of logical file (RCDFMT) - Help" The mention of "not a physical or logical file" refers to device files like tape or diskette. As for non-described files, if you do a DSPFD you'll see that there's one record format name - the name of the file.
