Hi !

Could you plse specify what you want to do a bit more clearly.

Otherwise I would say, there are a lot of solutions to change a file-size.

Hi..,

Create one temporary file
Copy the data from the file which you want to change the size into the temporary file
delete that file which you want to change the size
create(or Allocate) that again with the size you want
and copy the data from temporary file to the changed file

Thanks

Hi !

So ,ok, then you need to define the new VSAM-Dataset with your enhancements. Then you have to transfer the data from one file to the new file.

Also look at the FileAid utility if it is installed at your company.
