Ravi,

Give number (in your case 710) at the command prompt and press PF8.

710 <PF8> takes you down 710 recs from where you are.

The Locate command (L for short) takes you to the particular record:

L 710

works from anywhere in the file.

not only works, but meets the "requirement" of not using PF8. . . .

Ya gotta wonder where some of the requirements are generated - maybe an interview question?

The poster might have meant "without repeatedly using PF8" to move way down in the file (benefit of the doubt?).

Yup, might have. . .

At least one other person read it that way as their suggestion included using PF8 icon_smile.gif

Good thing there are many of us reading these as we often get multiple interpretations.
