Even the 1541-II manual refers to it and notes you should position twice to avoid, but I'd like to get more detail. I wrote a data base using rel file over 20 yrs ago that I still use. Never have errors. I do recall having problems at first, but don't recall now if the reason I open, P, write, close, each time is the cure. Also, I P to to the first byte of the record. So, my P line looks like this: PRINT#15,8,15,"P"CHR$(C+96)CHR$(L)CHR$(H)CHR$(1) where C is channel number, L & H are low high byte of record number, and 1 is first byte if record.
