Summary: 
The storage utilizations of existing similar key search files based on B+-tree and extensible hashing were under 70% and should be improved. A similar key search file based on extensible hashing with partial expansion and that on linear hashing with partial expansion are proposed. Computer simulations on about 230 thousand English words show that the storage utilizations of the files with 32 expansive steps are about 97%.
