Hello,

I am not aware of any products that access vsam files using db2 sql/dml.

While you may connect to vsam remotely, i am not aware of any software to do this for free.

If you explain your requirement (not how you want to solve it), someone may have a suggestion.

tcExpress and tcAccess are 2 products that may help.

I know one of them does map VSAM to SQL notation from a Windows machine. Someone has to manually map the copybook for each VSAM to an column name to be used via SQL though.
