Hi All,

My scenario as below, I have a file with below layout

Account Number X(15)
Country Code X(03)
First Name X(10)
Middle Name X(10)
Last Name X(10)
DOB X(10),

In the above layout combination of Account Number,First Name , and DOB are the key field. I want to create the VSAM file with above layout and have to use in program to access the records using above key fields.

Anyone help me how i can define the key fields. I think we can create primary key using consecutive fields only.
