HI jyoti,

Is the file indexed.If so make access mode as random.

suppose u want to search for eno=8
then ur code will be like this
Assume EMP is ur FD entry & ENO is one of the field.


MOVE 8 TO ENO
READ EMP INVALID KEY DISPLAY 'ERROR'
NOT INVALID KEY MOVE 1 TO FLAG.

This code will read the particular record & moves 1 to flag.You can display it using DISPLAY

Regards
Logaas
