[FKEYPOS = {0 | n}]    


Key position (in bytes), realtive to 0, in the records of an indexed file.

For receiver:

The default value is the value received from the protocol (PI 39) which is present if it has been defined by the requester. If this value is absent, the default value is then equal to 0.

The monitor receives the file in the form of sequential records. The client can develop a file type EXIT or write an end-of-transfer procedure to use this information which can be recovered by the symbolic variable &FKEYPOS.

For sender:

The monitor sends this information, transported by the protocol in the PI 39, but does not use it. The indexed file is transferred in the form of sequential records.
