Hi

I would like to know the limitations on the record length for various dataset record formats.
Like FB, VB, FBA, F

Can somebody help me in this regard? icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi,

These record lengths are differentiate according to the client system you using.

I think there is no fix format.

Please let me know if i'm wrong.

Thanks.

Okay, you're wrong.

The record length limitations are spelled out in the manual and do not depend upon the client system in any way, shape, style or form. Furthermore, your statement about "no fix format" makes absolutely no sense -- RECFM=F or FB or FBA or FBS are all fixed format.

A cute episode, no doubt (and one of few sans a fistfight), but nothing beats The Wrath of Khan, esp. the battle scene seen high on an overseas flight.
