Hi,

I've looked in the Ez manuals but can't seem to find an example of how to read a whole VSAM file sequentially. All I want to do is read the whole VSAM file, extract two fields and write them to a flat file.

Thanks,
J.

Hello,

Declare the filename as VS in the file specification.

Use the same "JOB INPUT filename" syntax that you would use for a QSAM file.

Unless you terminate the code, it will read the whole file. . .

Thanks Dick !
How would I code the "READ" statement ?
I know if I'm doing a random lookup I code this:
READ VSAMFILE KEY VS-KEY
but how would I code to READ the whole file ?

Thanks!
J.

Hello J,

You should be able to

As you are reading sequentially, you don't need the READ/KEY specification.

Sorry this didn't get sent earlier - thought i'd sent it, but was interrupted and had not.

Ok, here's what I have, but I keep getting errors:

JOB INPUT(VSAMFILE)
READ VSAMFILE
*******B054 NOT A VALID FILE - VSAMFILE
*******B026 REQUIRED PARAMETER IS NOT CODED - KEY

I define the file as:

1 FILE VSAMFILE VS
2 W-FIELD1 1 7 A
3 W-FIELD2 8 2 N

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...
Thanks,
J.

Hello,

Try replacing this
Code:
JOB INPUT(VSAMFILE)
READ VSAMFILE
with
Code:
JOB INPUT VSAMFILE
