you can read the records of sequential files only with the help of RBA, provided it is in online processing.

hi bhuvana,

if ur file is having less records like 50-100 then i think u can move them to a table and u can do dynamic access with the subscript....

corrections welcomed...

Thanks,
Rajesh
