This is not a big deal, but I have an Indexed File that is NOT described as OPTIONAL in the SELECT statement.
When I OPEN the file I-O, and the file is not there, it creates an empty file (good! that's what I want!) and returns a status code of 05 (instead of 35).
I would have thought that the status code would have been a 35 in this instance (as it is NOT described as an optional file).
So, my only question is why is it 05 instead of 35 in this case?
