You can use the VTOF (or CONVERT) parameter of DFSORT's OUTFIL statement to convert from VB to FB. You can use the FTOV parameter to convert from FB to VB.

For more information on DFSORT's VTOF parameter, see:

Hi muthu,
There are two ways to do this:
1.Go to file aid and copy from there and when u r copying dataset 'A' to dataset 'B' then give FB as recording format.Now your dataset will be of FB format.

2.Go to option 3.3(copy command) on main panel and copy A to B.Then when it asks for whether u want to keep the same attributes as of datset 'A'(option '1'),then select option '2'(as shown below in red) and give your own parameters for dataset 'B' and make recording format as FB or vice-versa .

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Allocate Target Data Set
Command ===>

Specified data set B
does not exist.
If you wish to allocate this data set, select one of the options
below.

Allocation Options:
2 1. Allocate using the attributes of:
A
2. Specify allocation attributes

Use existing SMS attributes for option 1

Instructions:
Press ENTER to allocate data set.
Enter CANCEL or END to cancel allocation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I hope its clear to you.

Thanks
sunny
