Karthi,

If you look at the Forum list you will notice one called "Interview Questions" within that there's a sub-catagory called "Mainframe-Basic". This forum was created specifically for you and this type of question. Please use it.

Dear karthi,

Fixed Length record:

If the length of the record is fixed in size, we can say it's fixed length.
For example 80 Characters length record.

If the size is from 30 character to 60 cgaracter, like that we can say it's variable length record.

LOW-VALUES:

Low-values means the lowest value of the collating sequence. (Ex: ASCII, ISCII, EBCDIC)

That's equivalent to X'00' or B'00000000'

High-value means the equivalent character against X''FF' in that collating sequence.
