Hi all, I would like to browse through a file which is in FOCUS format. My question is 1. Can we view a file which is in Focus format using its master file layout? One thing we can do is rerun the Focus job by modifying the "HOLD AS" to "SAVE AS" in FOCEXEC and browse the saved file.
2. Please suggest if there exists other methods to view a focus format file? It could be any thing like directly view FOCUS Format files using tools like star tool or Fileaid. If there is special command/procedure that can be used to view the file.
Thanks in advance G Sri Harsha.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,

GamP is correct. Some details are as follows: page 1 stores a sort of table of contents with DB structure and pointers to data pages. Each page stores data for each instance with vertical and horizontal pointers to te next instance of that data and child data, respectively.
Indexes tables are b-tree structures and are stored on separate pages. A multi-level design promotes efficient retrieval of indexed records especially for unique values.
I wrote a course about 20 years ago while at IBI that maps all this info in detail. Please ask your IBI rep. for info on a possible updated version.
Hope this helps.
