Hi

Could someone help me on this.

I tried to delete a record in flat file using Easytrieve. But could not succeed.

The syntax i used was

"WRITE filename DELETE"

but i believe this works for VSAM file only.

Experts please help on this.

Regards,
Jayadev

True, thats for VSAM datasets.
The only way to do it in EZT is :
read the file
skip the offending record
write the file.

For code see the users/reference guide.
