My ESDS file has 20 records of variable length. I want to rewrite 8th record information in my CICS program. But I don't know its RBA.

Is it possible?

It solves my problem temporarily. But what if there are some 1000 records and I want to rewrite some nth record content?

Have you considered a relative record definition?

Huh? RRDS can be variable.....
Well, unless you can overlay the ESDS with an AIX, you are probably stuck with the read n records.....
