My program is fetching records from a KSDS file(access sequential), so to check for end of file i have used READ FILE AT END MOVE 1 to WS-EOF(9(1) declared in WS-SECTION)..then i put this read in a loop say PERFORM until WS-EOF is 1..I would like to know if there is an easier way using which we could directly chk for end of file rather than moving a value when end of file is reached etc etc..

Hello nadeemahmed and welcome to the forums,

The READ. . .AT END is an easy way to detect EOF. . .

How would you prefer it work?

I would like to add to what Bill has already told.
SELECT FileA ASSIGN TO INFILE
FILE STATUS IS WS-Status.

Declare WS-STATUS in working storage and after read statement check
IF WS-Status = '10'
blah..
