Hi,

Yes, we can!

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

Yes you can use CHAIN on a format name, but the %FOUND() will not work on format names. You have to use the actually file name.

=====================================================

Note that the reference to %FOUND() not working on format names refers to %FOUND() itself, not to CHAIN. That is, if you use CHAIN with a format name, %FOUND() still works the same. If you specify a name for %FOUND(), it must be %FOUND(file_name).

    From long habit, all of my CHAIN and READ operations are done against the format, with the %FOUND and %EQUAL functions against the file.
