Hi
In one of my interview he asked me like "what happen if you try to open a file in EDIT mode if that file contain some 100 thousands of records" he want me to open the file through ISPF screen with Option 3.4. I simply given answer like "I never opened that much big file" My question is Do we get any error or he just tried to create some confusion.

WOW At last I Posted one Query

ThankYou

I don't know if you tried this but usually it should be Browse substituted.

I think as I remeber we can edit files of this volume in File Manager/File Aid

Frankly speaking I did not try this one. I was failed to find out that much big file as I am not dealing with that much big files. One more reason to ask this query is just I would like to know "Is there any limit and if I can not open in EDIT mode there must be some reason behind that".

Well, perhaps you should have used youe initiative and created your own test file and then tried it out.

Any limits are site specific, at the site that I am currently working I am allowed to increase my region size where as other users can not.

The reason will usually be that your memory allocation is too small to edit the file, hence some of us "trusted people" being able to change things ourselves without bothering site support.
