Hi,
The key field for search can be changed when you are trying to browse the file.

You need to give 'T' for temp data and so that you can change the search and see the rows.

Thanks!

Hi gowtham_1982,

Keys are protected in KSDS file, and you cannot edit them normally. However there are still two ways to edit the key -
1. repeat the record, edit the key of new record and delete the original record.
2. Using PROT OFF command in File-Aid when in FMT mode. This will make the key editable only for the record displayed.
