I want to extract some records from the file in production environment,

As you know,if the file is too large,it can only be opened in browse mode.

Is there any tso command to extract some records in browse mode?

It is a little bothering to do it by running a job.

Thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

hi,murmohk1.
Could you please explain it in more detail ?
'AB' seems to be an invalid command.


Besides,an internal utility (I think it has enclosed some IBM utilities) in our shop is used in the job to select certain records.

1) EDIT a new member / dataset
2) type COPY and hit ENTER
3) on the EDIT/COPY panel, enter as input the existing (large) file and the FIRST LINE, LAST LINE and NUMBER TYPE
