I need to create nearly 100 JCL files in order to DEL DEF VSAM files in a new CICS region duplicated from an old one.

The best way to avoid typo is to retrieve the VSAM file attributes from the existing VSAM files.

How to retrieve the VSAM file attributes using COBOL ?

Hi Jacob,

I do not know how to do it with COBOL only.

But I think it is possible to use LISTCAT to collect VSAM file attributes. And your COBOL program can use it as an input to generate those VSAM delete / define parameter.
