The Index component has the CIs arranged in the TREE format, each CI will have the high Key information for the CIs in the next lower level and the RBA. VSAM Index contains pointers to the next lower level. The Index may have many levels.

Now if you try to access a record using a key, it will try to find a match to the high key present in the CI and will traverse further down in each level to finally arrive at the exact Key and its RBA.

I hope this makes sense to u, if you need to further explore this please refer Use [URL] BBCode for External Links for the VSAM DEMYSTIFIED Redbook.
