Bill, The number of access paths over a file should have little bearing on clear time, no? The access path will be invalidated, the member cleared and then the AP rebuild over an empty member. Reorg is a different case where data still exists in the file. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Monday, January 07, 2002 14:10 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: sql - Drop and Add constraints Patrick, It might be taking longer to do your CLRPFM because of a large increase in the number of Logical Files and/or Views attached to the File/Table you're trying to clear. You may find that you have to do your CLRPFM using a technique that many use with the RGZPFM - whereby they remove all related access paths, reorg the PF (clear in your case), and recreate all the access paths afterwards. It is frequently faster.
