a flat file is too large and while opening the file in edit mode the file opens in browse mode rather than opening in edit mode.

how to edit the file in this case and save changes.

for view mode we can do it using the command :

REPL .ZF .ZL FILENAME

Please let me know how we can edit the file which is opened in the browse mode in the above example.

One option would be to use a different editor like File-Aid for instance. It MIGHT allow editing of a larger file than ISPF does. Another option would be to split the file up into smaller files via your sort product, edit each file, then concatenate them back together.

How do you open the file in edit-mode? Using ISPF edit facility or file-aid or some other tool? If you're using file-aid, may be we can work-around...

Hello,

Many files are simply too large to work with online. . .

If this is such a large file, you need to accomplish the updates in a batch job - IMHO.

If you split the file into several smaller pieces to work with, this will waste time and be more error prone (people make mistakes - tested processes do not).
