Hi friends,

I am writing some records in a VSAM KSDS file in a ambiguous order. For example for the Key value, I am writing 2, 4, 6, 10. Then if I write the 5 for the key will it be updated or will it abend?

Hi Hames,

new record will be inserted into the existing file for key =5.

You will get an abend only if Key duplicates.

Hope I answered!!
Thanks,
Mani

Hi Mani,

THanks a lot!

One more doubt, After insertion, will the records be automatically in the sorted order or do we need to sort it??

Hi frnd,
In KSDS if u insert a record in the middle order ie., Rec 1,2,5,7 for example and if u insert 3,4,6 then it will get arranged in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 ... so no need to sort.. it get's shifted automatically...
