No it just means that you select the sequence in whatever tool you are using
to access the data.
(Except RPG RLA of course)

The database then determines which index works best.

Actually for Record Level Access you CAN use an SQL index in the same way as
any old "logical file". It is definitely not the correct way to do it but it
actually works.

I need a keyed LF that can be used in RPG RLA, QRY/400, and SQL. If I use
a SQL view, I'm afraid I'll lose my >>keyed sequence.

Does that mean I have to use a DDS LF?
