Answer / deepak daswani

You can use READE opcode in dow while loop to read aal the
records of PF which is 'demo'.
Because everytime cursor reads the next value in the file.

Answer / bhalchandra

What u can do is u can create a non join LF over the PF and
give the Select clause for that field like this:
S FLD1 COMP(EQ 'demo')

And now u can use this LF in your program.

Answer / swetha p rao

If the particular field value is demo , then you can do
onething to avoid reading the file unnecesarily

1. Declare a temporary file in user open mode and specify
as external mbr in F spec.

2. In CPYF there is an option to include records (INCREL )
based on selection, just copy all the records where the
field value is 'demo' in a temporary file with a create
file option. (using QCMDEXC)

3.Now the temporary file will have only demo records.Open
the file and read the records.

(or)

Using SQLRPGLE, write a query to select the records which
has field value 'demo'


Correct me if iam wrong

Answer / sudhir

to escape from creating a new object of LF(if its not a
permanent requirement) you can use OPNQRYF to select
whichever records you want like:

OPNQRYF FILE((FILENAME)) QRYSLT('(FIELDNAME *EQ "demo")')

hope you got your answer

Answer / jeganath

Go for ReadE i.e Read Equals,

give 'Demo' in Factor 1

'Demo' ReadE

it will fetch records equals 'Demo' string in the file, and
also it avoid unnecessary reading of other records, very
effective,


Note: it works only when that field is declared as key in
PF file
