I would think you will have to unload it to a sequential file first.

Hello,

If you run an IDCAMS/Repro you can create a sequential file that will easily download.

If your vsam file contains packed decimal or binary data you will need to reformat your sequential file to edited zoned decimal. If you are downloading it to a pc or unix you may also need to create a "delimited" file for use on the target platform.

An easy to do this is to write a program that reads the vsam file and creates the output in a downloadable format. The program is bacically a vsam read, some moves (one for each field), and a write to a qsam output file.
