Hi,

I have to delete a GDG base, so i used the following command:

000008 //STEP010 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
000009 //SYSIN DD *
000010 DELETE T816953.INFILE.GDG FORCE
000011 /*

Is there any other way so that i can delete a GDG base?

I mean without using FORCE in the DELETE command.

Any suggestion is most welcome.

Thanks,
