Yep......

GU with key like 1234500000 and less 1234600000 to retrieve the first one and then repeated GN with the same SSA. Learn about SSA's particular the Multiple Qualification Statements. Hope this is a simple structure database because the GN will I/O all segments even if they don't qualify. The only segments retrieved are the ones that qualify. May be an index would help.

Hi,
i have to give a qualified SSA where i know only the last 8 characters of the key field and the key length is 10 characters of alpha numeric.
Is there anyway for resolving this problem?
