Hi,

I need to copy a dummy record(With all zeroes) into a VSAM KSDS file of length 39. Could anyone let me know how we can achieve this through JCL. One more constraint is, we shouldn't use sequential file to pass the dummy record.

Please let me know if you require more information.


Thanks,
Ravi Kumar.

Have you looked at IDCAMS REPRO? How about either sort?

Why on earth not ?

Take a look at the REXX I posted for VSAM initialisation.
