I have never tried this but I see no reason why it would not work.

Reason behind thinking this is that your statement "which are of course old flat files" is not really correct. The files are regular database tables - just with system generated external descriptions. Do a DSPFFD against one and you'll see. The "fields" have names as do the keys. It is just that one "field" may encompass the entire record.

I have a client who is still using a Sys/36 based application written by IBM years ago(of course).

The question is - would this exit point work on files opened in QS36F which are of course old flat files(not even DDS built files).
