Hi all,

Is there any way of deleting only the data or index components of VSAM File through JCL. I tried it out through DELETE parameter of IDCAMS but not working.

In one of the scenario the base cluster of KE file was missing but the DATA and INDEX component of the file was however present. What could be the reason behind it?

Thanks in Advance

What, in this scenario, is a KE file?
