Hi
I have a very large sequential file. Whenever I try to open this in edit mode, it opens in browse subsituted mode. This is the reason I am not able to set pack-off for this file.
Is there a way to change the pack settings of this very file without opening it ?
Thanks in advance !

Wouldn't you have to copy it?

I can copy it to another file if this serves the purpose.
Do we have the option to copy the data from one file to the other with changes in 'Pack' format ?

Take a look at option 3.3 in your main menu. You can select the PACK mode while copying.
