dear siddharth,

we cant delete record....

the sequential file organization must be used to open a VSAM ESDS, it is not possible to delete records in a VSAM ESDS. Because the input/output open mode cannot be used to open a VSAM path, it is not possible to delete records in a VSAM path. Instead, the application program must delete the record by using the base data set of the VSAM path. However, if the base data set of the VSAM path is a VSAM ESDS, the DELETE does not work.


regards

elango.
