for indexed file organization we use KSDS files, The prime key consists
of one or more consecutive characters within the records. The prime key
uniquely identifies the record and determines the sequence in which it is accessed with respect to other records.
how to use ksds:-
you need to define the key in record description part of Data Division.
"RECORD KEY IS data-name"
and to read a record with the key,you need to move the key value to data-name in the procedure division and then you can read the file.
I have an another doubt about how to use them.actually i want to know about ESDS file .
