Hi ALL,
I want to take table unload into a flat file through JCL. After that, I want that flat file to be made write protected ie. No one (including me) should be able to edit the file. Can it be done ? If yes, How ? Can RECFM=U be used here. If yes, How ?

Tasks such as HSM will need ALTER access to migrate/recall the file.

The danger of doing this is that soon everyone will forget why this file is so closely protected and then it will never get deleted because of that. And then perhaps the next version will be the same.

I suggest that you take multiple backups of this flat file, use DFdss, use HSM as well, also use RACF to disallow anything but READ access to everyone except those that will need to administer the file.
