Hi all,

I want to read a input FILE FILE1 sequentially. But after EOF of FILE1 I want to reset the location of file-pointer such that when I do next GET it gives me 1st record insted of EOF.

FILE FILE1

GET FILE1
IF EOF FILE1
* CODE/ KEYWORD TO RESET THE LOCTION OF POINTER TO START OF FILE
END-IF

Use the POINT statement.

Hi ofer71,

I may use POINT with VSAM and ISAM file. But in this case it is a simple PS.

Hello,

Why do you want to point back to the beginning of the file?

If this is an attempt to re-read the file multiple timeds, it is most likely a bad design decision.

If you explain what you actually need to accomplish, we may be able to offer more usable alternatives.
