Hi,

Can we increase the File atributes (LRECL, Blocsize.....etc...) of existing file..

Please dont say like Copy that existing file to another file and delete the existing somt thing like... Imagine this is production requirement....
So I cant delete the production file and I cant create new again as i dont have prodction access, I have only read access....

Thanks in Advance...

Regards.
Sree.....

Hi !

No, you can't do this.

1.) You can't alter interacticly the Lrecl of a cataloged Flatfile.

2.) Only Read Access, then if it where possible (but it is not possible)
RACF would not allow you to alter a dataset.

Hi !

I think kanak is talkink about PDSFAST, it's an Enhancement Produkt for
with TSO surface. An other one is FILEAID. They must be installed in your environment.

But as I mentioned, you said, you only have read access. And if the systemprogrammer had done a good job, then anyway RACF would not allow you to do what you want.

Hi !

Best is to read in the FileAid online tutorial. or have a look at Bookmanager.

And once more:

But as I mentioned, you said, you only have read access. And if the systemprogrammer had done a good job, then anyway RACF would not allow you to do what you want.
