I am not sure how would AMODE and RMODE would affect the size of my input sequential file to a COBOL program.

Can anybody explain this?

I'm not sure it would, what makes you think it will?
Since you are reading a file, you will see each record one at a time.

seems strange to me too, but this was a question asked by one of my colleagues and i could not relate how will that affect.

Thanks William..i think you are right. There is no connection betwen the two.

kalukakkad,

Other than some "strange" attempt to imply records greater in length than 24 bits can hold, sounds like a "trick question"....
BUT, if you find another answer, Please post it, I am ALWAYS looking for answers....

Bill
