What is the efficient way to copy data from a sequential file to VSAM file?
I need to copy some 2000 records from a sequential file (which contains around 300,000 records) to a VSAM file.

first you can sort and extract only the 2000 records, and then do the IDCAMS REPRO

There's no need to use sort and REPRO (two passes). You can use DFSORT to sort/extract the records and write them directly to a VSAM output file (one pass).
