The contents of the file would necessarily be compressed or translated or the likes and one reason I can think of is space constraints. The interactive option of xpediter seems to me to be CICS driven and as you know CICS uses VSAM files and aditionally ESDS removes the possibility of deleting lines from the file. a Person cannot read the DDIO file and that's that. The DDIO file listings are created from your source listing so why don't you browse the source listing in it's library?
