hi
babum

when you are using ksds

the main consideration on

file control

select filename assign to jcldd
organiztion is indexed
access mode sequential/random/dynamic
record key is file-key-field
alternate key is file-alternate-key field.


if it is sequential access no bother of record key and alternate key.

thanks,
thanooz.

Hi Babun,

The reason for not using SELECT * FROM query in the program is:

1.If the table structure is changed (a field is added), the program will have to be modified.

2.Program might retrieve the columns which it might not use, leading on I/O over head.


Cheers
Ravi

hi babu

For three reasons:
If the table structure is changed (a field is added), the program will have to be modified
Program might retrieve the columns which it might not use, leading on I/O over head.
The chance of an index only scan is lost.

thanks,
thanooz.
