<snip> Yes a PF can have >1 record format. </snip> This statement is incorrect. The following comes straight from the DDS Reference manual: Defining a Physical File A physical file can contain only one record format. Specify the record format in either of two ways: * Define a new record format. Specify field and key field specifications as desired for the new record format. * Share an existing record format. Use the FORMAT keyword to specify that the OS/400 program is to use a previously defined record format from another physical file. When the FORMAT keyword is used, key field level specifications must be specified again (if a keyed access path is desired) even if they were specified on the existing record format. This is an old manual however, V2R3M0. We are currently on V4R2M0. +--- | 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 +---
