Ü READPE (N | E)  (Read Prior Equal)     

§  READPE moves the pointer to the previous record and reads the record and again moves the pointer to next previous position and read the same matching record for factor-1.

§  Factor-1 is used to place the search argument which can be the key, relative record number or field value or named constant or figurative constant used to retrieve the record.

§  READPE is best used when there can be more than one record found. For example, you can find multiple customer orders in your system for one unique customer in reverse order while CHAIN is best used to locate a unique record (like a customer record).

§  Using READPE, we can read all the records which match the records corresponding to search argument in factor-1. If there are no records with the specified criteria then the pointer will be set to BOF.

§  To handle READPE exceptions (file status codes greater than 1000), either the operation code extender 'E' or an error indicator at LO level can be used.

§  If the data-structure is specified in result field then the result of the operation is filled in the data structure.

§  The Equal Indicator gets turned-on if the EOF condition is met else it will be off. Instead of using this indicator we can also go for %EOF().
