Hi All,
I have a list of some endever elements (more than 500) which include COBOL programs, bindcards, Includes, etc. I want to delete all of them from endevor after taking backup in PDS. What is the quickest possible way ????

Parag,

I have been at three sites that use endevor and each had its own perferred procedure.

I would talk to your endevor support group.

Where I am now, I would generate retrieve SCL for the modules.

Problem with retrieve scl, it requires the level/version number. so that would require using the endevor screens to generate the scl - (stop complaining about 500 items - I have 9700 items to deal with where i am).
I would then massage the retrieve scl (deleting the vsn stuff and changing retrieve to delete).

The retrieve can be a batch process. the delete would probably be required to be a package.

Parag,
Firstly use package to delete instead of batch also, it will be faster,

secondly, you can create an scl with delete option only (instead of creating retrieve and change to delete).

If all the elements are from same environment/system/subsystem (endevor terminology) you can use "DISPLAY OPTION = N" instead of default =Y, so that endevor generates all scl rather than you select each element.

Using package you will have a record which I guess is required to delete bunch of modules from Endevor.

No problem ! I can provide it !
Actually the list of elements along with Sys, Subsys, Type, Level, version is avialable in a PS file, one row for each element. So I was thinking about a job or something, which will read the record and process it. This way for all the records.
