What do you actually mean by "top to bottom"? From the highest key to the lowest?

After you have read the record, do you then update it or ???

is there anything on the F specs I could be overlooking?
I put a counter in for the read and I get the right number of times through
the read routine.

Doing a "DOU NOT %EOF(filename)
Then an EXSR X1 to the read routine where the read on the file is

I put an if statement in after the read looking against one of the account

more hits in the IF statement checking against that one account number.
