Yes. You can copy the VSAM file to another file and put spaces wherever you want them. For example, assuming your VSAM data set has fixed length records and you want to blank out data columns 11-15 and 21-25, you can use these DFSORT control statements:

Code:

   OPTION COPY
   RECORD TYPE=F
   INREC OVERLAY=(11:5X,21:5X)
