There may be a compare utility out there to do what you want, but I'd just copy the VSAM to a flat file via DFSORT and compare flat files.

EComp is an independent software ( I invented ) which can cross compare any objects on IBM Mainframes : SAM, VSAM, DB2 tables, Queues, unloads od BD2 ( IBM, BMC ),extracts of SPUFI, QMF, SDSF, DDL's, Structures, apple, pear.... "Cross" means you can compare a SAM file with the content of a DB2 table, or a VSAM with a SAM, etc

The power of utility are in a nutshell : variety of criteria ( select, where clause, mutation, tolerance, reformat, timestamp neutralisation, ... and clear results : direct to the spot.

Check at www.evola.be

More documentation on request if really interested.

best regards

Pierre
