Hi,

if find it difficult to comprehend how you can go from using a utility and from next month you have to look for a replacement without a plan in place.

Hi,

assuming it's a 3390 device, with an LRECL of 29990, you can only fit 1 record per track.

8700 records will need 8700 tracks

8700/15 equals 580 cyls.

Hi Biswa,

as the file is VB, some of recods are less than 34 bytes long ie. your search is reaching beyond the length of the record.
