The ACCESS specifier indicates the access method for the connection of the file. It takes the following form:
|'DIRECT'||Indicates direct access.|
|'SEQUENTIAL'||Indicates sequential access.|
|'APPEND'||Indicates sequential access, but the file is positioned at the end-of-file record.|
The default is 'SEQUENTIAL'.
There are limitations on record access by file organization and record type.
