If you have a key field in that file, you could use that working storage field name and use "WHEN" command.
For eg.if you have the file with student id as a field and 8th record in the file has student id=100, then you could use the command
Code:
WHEN student-id = 100

and then "F12" to jump to the code which reads the record from the file.

Thanks,
Kousalya
