I have created a non-reusable VSAM file.
I am able to load records into the file first time by opening the file in OUTPUT mode.
But on trying to reload the records next time in OUTPUT mode is giving this error --- Non-reusable non-empty data set was opened with
the RESET option.
How to solve this ??

From the fine manual ....................
Specifies whether or not the cluster can be opened again and again as a reusable cluster.
If REUSE or NOREUSE is specified in the SMS data class, the value defined is used as the data set definition, unless it has been previously defined with an explicitly specified or modeled DEFINE attribute.
Specifies that the cluster can be opened again and again as a reusable cluster. When a reusable cluster is opened, its high-used RBA is set to zero if you open it with an access control block that specifies the RESET attribute.
REUSE lets you create an entry-sequenced, key-sequenced, or relative record work file.
When you create a reusable cluster, you cannot build an alternate index to support it. Also, you cannot create a reusable cluster with key ranges (see the KEYRANGE parameter). Reusable data sets can be multivolume and can have up to 123 physical extents.
Restriction: If you select REUSE and your command also contains the keyword UNIQUE, you must remove the UNIQUE keyword or the DEFINE command will be unsuccessful.
Indicates that the cluster cannot be opened again as a new cluster.
