hi siva,

browse can use only for sequential files. Read can be used Random as well as sequential. When ever u r using seqential browse is mandotary in cics. Read can be used for read the records either random or sequential. Browse can be used to when u r accessing the sequential file.

BROWSE is used for sequential processing, not for sequential files. (I guess CICS supports only VSAM files icon_wink.gif )
READ is used to read a record randomly from VSAM file.


Hope this helps,

Hi All,

BROWSE is used to locate the position of the record. After issuing BROWSE operation we will read the Records either Forward or Backward..

READ is used to Read the Records.

Correct me if I am wrong..

Chowdary
