Hi,
I have a set of records(say 100) in a file which are displayed in panels for the user to view or edit.
if a user edits the 51st record how do i write that particular record into the data file.



with regards,
surya

read into a stem all the records,
carry on the updates
rewrite the dataset/member from the stem
there is no way to update a single logical record in a PS datsset

yes,

You will not be updating all the records
You will copy from the input dataset to the output dataset..

thats the basic rule of sequential dataset processing

I have to double-check this, but I could swear that you can open a dataset and read a single record for update with EXECIO DISKRU, then write the single updated record back with the corresponding EXECIO DISKW, without having to process the entire dataset.

I double-checked. You can update a single record. For example, if you have 10,000 records, and you want to update record 5000:

Code:

/* REXX */
"EXECIO 1 DISKRU ddname 5000"
Pull the_record
the_record = "THIS RECORD HAS BEEN CHANGED"
Push the_record
"EXECIO 1 DISKW ddname (FINIS"
