Kay,



Would you be kind of enough to present this note to the IDMS Listserv
group?


When adding an OM Index to an existing record and realize some programs
that access the Record the Index is being added to will have to be
changed to READY the new Index Area.

We are certain programs that are to do the following need to READY the
new Index Area:

CONNECT or DISCONNECT Records to the new Index

Access Record using the New Index

Any others???



But what about other programs. Do these programs need to READY the new
Index Area?

Simply access the records with the new index by other means than the new
index

STORE Records, but do not connect them to the index

Modify records, but do not connect them to the index

Erase records that are not already connected to the index

Erase r Owner Records with ALL option (I.e. Erase IBASETR ALL MEMBERS,
where the member record is the one with the new Index).

Re: OM INDEX
"Kay,
My guess would be exactly as described by the designer. The only
exception I can see is if the index is sorted, the record belongs to the
index and you modify the sort key within the record. In this instance, IDMS
would need to access the index. Other than that, as long as you don't
access via the index or CONNECT/DISCONNECT, I don't think you need to READY
the area.
