Can i view the contents of the Non VSAM file residing on tape using file-aid?

Hrecall wont work, because this was not migrated to tape but resides in tape as its huge.

Hello,

Please do not ask a new question in a reply to a 2-year old topic. A new topic has been created for your topic.

You will not view the tape data directly. You should copy a selected set of records to dasd and view the dasd file.

You do not want to copy the entire file to dasd (at least not without permission from your storage administration people).

Hi !

You could use DITTO functions to view the tape content.
Have a look at Bookmanager for more informations on DITTO.

Regards, UmeySan

If the tape file contains a hundred million records, doing this will have the storage administrators looking for you with blunt objects to inflict pain icon_smile.gif
