In this paper a file address problem is proved to be equivalent to a problem in coding theory. Results in coding theory can thus be used in solving this file addressing problem. It is shown, in particular, how the theory of Bose-Chaudhuri codes can be applied. A simple transformation from the input information to its address is given. This method can be easily implemented using either a computer or shift registers.
