FIND statement and WITH clause

Friends,

I have never seen a FIND statement coded without a WITH clause. The document also says it is required.

Then why in FIND syntax it is given as optional (i.e. in square bracket [])

Hope, I understand syntax symbols correctly :smiley:

The WITH clause is required; the WITH keyword is optional.

The following are equivalent:

FIND EMP WITH DEPARTMENT = 'ADMA'
FIND EMP DEPARTMENT = 'ADMA'

Thanks Ralph! Got it clear.
