Hi....Would you know what could be the cause of data appearing in an IMS database out of order? Access type is HIDAM, rules=(,H). The segment that is out of sort order is a child, there are 4 occurrences, and it should be sorted by effective date. Here is an example of the database in data vantage. The key field is pm-acct-eff-date, so the data should be inserted by that date: CUSTROOT (01,001) CUSTNO(00,12345690) CUST (02,003) **NOKEY** PM-ACCT-EFF-DATE 06047+ PM-ACCT-NO-5 21859 PM-SUB-ACCT 999 CUSTROOT (01,001) CUSTNO(00,12345690) CUST (02,003) **NOKEY** PM-ACCT-EFF-DATE 05017+ PM-ACCT-NO-5 62092 PM-SUB-ACCT 000 CUSTROOT (01,001) CUSTNO(00,12345690) CUST (02,003) **NOKEY** PM-ACCT-EFF-DATE 01017+ PM-ACCT-NO-5 61570 PM-SUB-ACCT 000 CUSTROOT (01,001) CUSTNO(00,12345690) CUST (02,003) **NOKEY** PM-ACCT-EFF-DATE 06017+ PM-ACCT-NO-5 21859 PM-SUB-ACCT 000
