I think you need to read the 50th record from a PS file. If that is the case here's how:

Read infile and add 1 to ws-record-read variable until ws-record-read = 50.

I think this is a DB2 interview question.

Table (City,city code)

He wants the city code for the city that is the 50th retrieved row.

Fredrick Andrews,

i realize that you are trying to increase your post count,
but try to pick on questions that are not 2 years old

besides, any idiot that says nth row anything without an established ORDER BY
simply does not understand DB2

JCL, SQL and code in programs have an irritating habit of doing what you say,
not what you meant.
