Ü UPDATE (Modify Existing Record)

·         Update operation modifies the latest read record in the program.

·         Before the Update operation is performed the record should be perform valid input operation like READ, READC, READE, READP, READPE, CHAIN on the file. If it doesn’t it gets an error “Update operation before any prior input operation.

·         Update operation should be performed on a record format name.

·         Update operation puts a lock on the record which it is trying to modify, after the UPDATE operation the record is automatically unlocked.

·         Update operation on a subfile is performed to update the subfile with changes in the subfile attribute e.g. change in display attribute/indicators.

·         For partial updating a file, we can use %FIELDS or EXCEPT.

·         If we use a data structure in result field then the file is directly updated from the data structure.
