Hi,

The LOCATE statement can be used only with an OUTPUT SEQUENTIAL
BUFFERED file for locate mode processing. It allocates storage within an output buffer for a based variable and sets a pointer to the location of the next record.

Just check this as as example.

declare your record structure with storage based
DECLARE P POINTER;
DECLARE 1 INREC BASED(P),
2 DATA CHAR(80);

Decalre the file with OUTPUT SEQUENTIAL BUFFERED

P->DATA = 'ABCDEFGH';
LOCATE DATA FILE(FILENAME);
P->DATA = 'XYZDSDSD';
LOCATE DATA FILE(FILENAME);

Please check the above code.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Regards,
Karnati.
