Why would it become corrupted if it was not edited by Fileaid ?

What is your definition of corrupt ?

It is the data that usually becomes corrupt, not the file.

data looks fine, but when file is processed by JCLs or abinitio graph it is not providing expected output.

i just want to avoid any abends in process and identify if file is corrupted.
