Hi,
I want to delete some modules from MFS format libraries using a JCl. The modules looks as shown below
."aB0043

Since it starts with a period (.) and quotes (") I am not able to delete it using the IDCAMS utility.

Could someone please help me as to how do I go about deleting the element.

Curios to know why you want to delete modules in MFS library?

Dont you have Endevor for version control of MFS?

I removed the MFS source module via Endevour and thought that endeavour would also delete the modules from the format libraries. But the modules from format libraries was not removed and hence I need to delete the module via JCL.

I want to delete only some MFS module from the format library. I do not want to delete the whole library.

I am not very clear with what you mean by
remove your MFS changes and keep the original MFS

We are decommissioning a application from production and the MFS module is part of it. So we need to delete the module.
