Did you mean, "What is the effect of "Reuse deleted records = *YES"?

Or do you mean a physical file (with REUSEDLT=*NO)
where new records are appended to the end of the file,
and deleted records just marked as deleted,
and create "holes", until you run a RGZPGM ...?

Mark -

The latter.

I am mainly interested in whether or not a program will perform better
against a file that has been reorganized to remove deleted records.

We have some programs which use SQL, but this is a JDE Shop using
DreamWriter, which dynamically builds and executes the OPNQRYF before
calling the RPG program.

For example, the file in question has 100,000,000 records with 20,000,000
deleted records.
