You can use IDCAMS

Code:

LISTCAT ENTRIES (VSAM FILE NAME) ALL



and in result look for

Code:


ATTRIBUTES                 
  KEYLEN----------------12
  RKP--------------------0



this gives you key length and relative key position.

Another way is by using FILEAID:

F.FA;3.5 option , enter VSAM file name and press enter and look for:

KSDS key length: 12
KSDS key location: 0
