In Reply to: a question about file sizes in KeyBuild (CometEx) posted by Bob A on June 06, 2013 at 09:28:08:

well.... Key Build seems to still be running, but I'm not 100$ sure

the output file size is up to about 3.7GB, which is more than 50% bigger than the input file

one thought was that I'm reading in a keyed file and re-building according to the record number, not the key tree....

if it still seems to stumble along without telling me what it's doing.... I'll unload the keyed file to a sequential file, and then re-build from the sequential file.

not sure if this is important, but this may be the first time I've re-built a file directly from the keyed file, without first unloading it.... there was a question about overlaying the output file, to which I replied OK, and didn't think anything of it, because the output file was empty anyway....
