Hello,

If you only have one input file, you can read it and copy the record omitting the unneeded record(s).

You could do this with a COBOL program or possibly the sort, depending on the requirement.

If it is an infrequent thing, the various edit options in TSO work great.

Or File-Aid.

Heck, if it's a large file, you could use a utility - maybe even File-Aid!

You could write a program, but it seems a lot of work for one record.

Yeah, I'm lazy. I look for the quickest, easiest route. icon_lol.gif
