Checking how many records there are in a dataset using 3 methods: Easytrieve, sort, and using a cobol program.
Easytrieve is generating an automatic report and it says that the data set has 1,826,983,538 records, but when using the cobol program which is also written in Easytrieve it shows 2,467,983,758 records.
Copying the dataset using FASTGENR says there is 1,826,983,538 records.
