When a superdescriptor contains all numeric fields, I’ve always seen it defined as a binary field ( eg, 3 fields, N10, N4 & N10 = B24 super). Is this mandatory, best practice or shop standards?
If the super in the example above were defined as N24 instead of B24, would it explain why:
READ file BY super
returns no records while
READ file BY super = #STARTING-VALUE
