Hi, Rob:

So long as those RRNs are never stored anywhere else, (e.g. in any other files, to "point to" records in this file), then what's the harm in allowing a RGZPFM? I think RGZPFM requires "exclusive" access to the file, so none of your applications can be actively using this file, when the RGZPFM takes place; or the RGZPFM will get:

CPF3202 File XXXXXXXXXX in library YYYYYYYYYY in use.

So long as the application does not close the file, and "hang onto" any RRNs, and then re-OPEN the file and expect the records to still be there in the same place, you should be okay.

Or, am I missing something?

If one routinely access a file by RRN is there a way to CHGPF or some such thing to prohibit RGZPFM against that particular file?
