Hi,

I have a doubt in ESDS. Suppose, I have 5 records in it. I need to insert a new record in the place of 3rd record. Is it possible to do so? Otherwise, is there any way to do the same?

Why deletion is not possible in ESDS?

Please let me know?..

No Inserting records in between is not possible in ESDS.

ESDS means Entry Sequenced DataSet, records are stored one by one after last record. There can not be done any indexing on ESDS files. Browsing ESDS files starts record by record. So deleting a record in between is also not possible.
