Thanks for your reply Rob
However - that documentation is for V7r5
We are on V7r3 - so I am still not sure
I do agree with your thought as to it being a hard halt - but right now I am clutching at straws as to what is causing this slow down
We are having a meeting of the minds this afternoon - hopefully we can work this out

Subject: [EXTERNAL] RE: Is there a limit as to the number of files an RPG ILE program can procss

I suspect it wouldn't be slow but it would be a hard halt.
For example, when we got our first AS/400 we had a one file limitation in RPG. At first I was thinking they were taking this modular concept to the extreme. That's when I first learned about PTF's.

And I just learned something new. Now there is no limit on the number of files.

Hi everyone
We are on V7r3
As the subject describes
Is there a limit as to the number of files an RPGILE program can process?
If so - any idea what that limit is?
The reason why I am asking is that a change was made to a particular program back in February of this year and a file was inserted into rge logic
Just recently, we have been receiving complaints of how slow this program has become
As we have recently deleted some older records on a number of files, we have re-orged (RGZPFM) a number of the files used by this program thinking that the number of deleted records may have been the reason why - but it looks like that was not the case
This program has a LARGE number of files defined in F specs, I was wondering if the new file may have been the final straw

Any and all responses gratefully accepted
