Drawback of sequential file, Data Structure & Algorithms

Following are some of the drawback of sequential file organisation:

Updates are not simply accommodated.

By definition, random access is impossible.

All records should be structurally identical. If a new field ought to be added, then every record should be rewritten to provide space for the new field.
