Muthu, You are right. Do you know the reason for this option - creating a DBF without a member? I think it may be used for field ref. file. Pls correct me if I am wrong.

Yes Razuk thats Right . we can have a PF without a member. while comiling the file we can give member option - None . which will not create a member. But in order to store data and access it member is required.usually we create a filed referece file with member option with *None.
