Here is what I mean from top to bottom on the file.
Using DBU here are the first three variables or columns.
Key 1 is the first column A5 length. Key 2 is the second column A14 length

company Customer National
Account
005 000059 000059
005 000117 000117
005 000125 000117
005 000133 000117
005 000141 000117
005 000158 000117
005 000166 021436
005 000174 074625
005 000182 000182
005 000208 000208
005 000224 000224

Code

setll (cuco: cucuno) arlcu;
dow not %eof(arlcu);
exsr mainloop;
enddo;

begsr mainloop;
read arlcu;
if cunano = ' 000117';
count4 = count4 + 1;
cunano = cunano;
endif;
count1 = count1 + 1;
endsr;

I get 14 for count4. And 36 thousand plus for counter1. Which is the
number of records in ARLCU. Which in real life is a LF, but when I copied
the file into my library ARLCU became a PF.

What am I missing here?

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 ???

I want to read a keyed file from top to bottom. i.e. I am finding that I
seem to read some records more than once.

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
BEGSR x1
READ FILENAME;
endsr

I put an if statement in after the read looking against one of the
account
numbers that is only in the file being read from once. But I get SEVEN or
more hits in the IF statement checking against that one account number.
