Out of curiosity, the term "flat file" is usually NOT associated with mainframe datasets, right? It seems the only folks I ever hear referring to data as a "flat file" are the non-mainframe Windows/Unix guys, where I think that is an actual valid term.

Yes superk,

You are right, Even I also belive that "FLAT file" is not an actual term mentioned in any of the mainframe reference.
This also confused me initially. Thanks for clarification.
