I had a file, Organization mode is INDEXD and access mode is DYNAMIC. Moving the values to the record key and simply reading the file (Not with START) as below.

READ INPUT-FILE INTO INPUT-RECORD.

If the record not found what would be there in INPUT-RECORD and record-key.

I guess it will get intialize. Please correct me if wrong.

Thanks.

too bad you don't have it anymore,
you could have run a quick test.

only thing I can suggest is read the manuals (top of page - MANUALS button) for cobol application programmers manual which will detail how the I/O commands function.

Possibly will not answer your question directly, that would require mainframe usage, which I am not going to expend to verify your guess.

I don't know the answer to your question because I would not use your syntax and expect the I/O to function as I wanted.

See dbzTHEdinosauer,
It is not too bad, i want confirmation which i am guessing, i have already tried in my system (since i am working on UNIX cobol). I want to know what will happen in mainframes. That it. if you dont have time you no need to give such reply.

READ INPUT-FILE INTO INPUT-RECORD. ----This is basic syntax in mainframes cobol.

But thanks for letting one thing. it will depend on the I/O function also.

Thanks

Why guess when the manual is available from this web page in just a few clicks of the mouse? You can then read section 6.2.28 of the COBOL Language Reference manual and know -- not guess -- exactly what happens in this case, since the manual explicitly tells you.

Hint: you are wrong because initialization is not involved.
