"ASSUME THAT WE R HAVING SOME 100 RECORDS(NOT NUMBERS ASSUME WE R HAVING EMPLOYEE DETAILS FROM THAT ) WE WANT TO FETCH THE RECORD WITH EQUAL INTERVALS OF RECORDS FOR EXAMPLE 5TH , 10TH ,15TH, 20TH LIKE THAT" AND TO WRITE IN ANOTHER FILE

Hi,
Use count while reading. incriment the count in each read. once it reach 5, 10, 15..... like that write that particular record in output file.

MOVE 1 TO COUNT.
PERFORM READ-PARA UNTIL EOF= 'Y'.
READ-PARA.
READ FILE1 AT END MOVE 'Y' TO EOF GO TO CLOSE-PARA.
IF COUNT = 5
MOVE REC1 TO OUTREC
WRITE OUTREC
MOVE 0 TO COUNT
END-IF.
ADD 1 TO COUNT.
CLOSE PARA.
CLOSE FILE1,OUTFILE.
STOP RUN.

Hi Senthil..
Let me know if they were talking of Sequential file or Indexed file.. If it is Indexed file, we will be having a Key with which we can directly point to the records and read them and throw them out..
thats it..
Srinath.
