When i try to read huge file having millions of records i could not do it using EXECIO command. Is there any approach for reading large files in REXX?

Yes, using EXECIO - but you need to process the file in sections.

There is an example on the forum that I posted some time ago.

Here's a rule-of-thumb for you: Reading large datasets in REXX is a bad idea. Not only the storage is exhausted, the process consumes a lot of CPU.

Hello,

FWIW - there is always a better way to process large files than to use rexx/execio. . .

Keep in mind that things that are bad performers originally will only get worse as volume increases (and it usually does).
