Hello,

On the original system:
Get the original DEFINE control statements and place them in a member on shared dasd. REPRO the data into a qsam file that is on shared dasd.

On the "new" system:
DEFINE the vsam file and all indexes. Load the data using IDCAMS or sort.

You have migrated the file to the new sysytem.

thanks a lot. Do you have the example for "copy vsam to qsam" and "load the qsam to vsam" ?

You can use IDCAMS EXPORT/IMPORT or IDCAMS REPRO to a flat file and then repro it into the new file, DFdss will work too, and so will FAVER (GVEXPORT / GVIMPORT) if you have it installed on your system.
