Explanation:
Records in an ordered Sequential file are arranged, in order, on some key field or fields. When we want to insert,delete or amend a record we must preserve the ordering. The only way to do this is to create a new file. In the case of an insertion or update, the new file will contain the inserted or updated record. In the case of a deletion, the deleted record will be missing from the new file.
