I had the "K" in column 34. Removed that and took out the SETLL. Get the exact same results. At no time should
This statement be TRUE;

read arlcu;
if cunano = savcuno;
count4 = count4 + 1;

savcuno = cunano;
count1 = count1 + 1;


There are 36,815 records in ARLCU and not a single repeating CUNANO.

Not sure what is up.

Hi Thomas,

In regards to your question "is there anything on the F specs I could be overlooking?", make sure there's a "K" in pos.34 of the F-spec, or if you're doing free-format, the KEYED keyword. Otherwise you'd be reading the file by RRN instead of by key.

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
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.
