David, Yes, that's what I'm saying for the 2 files that are coming from two of my customers. Flat files no keys, one doesn't even have a place you could build a key onto.

Are you saying your physicals aren't keyed, that the details are associated with the header purely by location within the file? Wow, what a screwy design that must be! You have my respect for coping with that, if that's the case. I've never had the misfortune to see such a thing. If that's the case, then multi-format logicals wouldn't work, since they do require keys for proper retrievals of their contents. +--- | 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 +---
