Hi Dpkee,

There is a read with generic read option in CICS.

READ FILE(filename) INTO(data-area) LENGTH(n) RIDFLD(key) KEYLENGTH(n) GENERIC

Would this help.

hi,
I think u can use partial key in VSAM-cobol prog.
it will retrieve all the records which contain that partial key as their initial part of key , like:
supose partial key is 101*
then it will retieve all records like..
10123
10127
10180...etc.
