see here for all(almost) You might want to know about VSAM ... .html?Open

and the implications of having Average record size = Maximum record size
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

As fr as I know there is no such thing as a 'KE' file. What you are showing is a KSDS VSAM dataset (not a file).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
