When you open and PDS you can see a message at the top right corner like -
Code:
Row 00001 of 01000


Now put 999 and then press F8, you will be right there in 999th element.
Though I am not a REXX expert, this can be achieved through REXX also.

regards,
Sandip.

I think this CTS place need to get a grip with their questions. These questions that everyone keeps posting here are absolutely ridiculous! What on earth would this prove?

I doubt what the interviewer is actually asking is placed over here or not. May be the candidates are misunderstanding the questions because the answers of these questions will prove nothing as you stated.

It is correct nankrish... icon_smile.gif
I think this is not really a interview Q. icon_confused.gif
Or the interviewer is also a beginner to this. icon_mad.gif
