Hi

I have a KSDS file. I want to search this File based on some criteria and the records that fulfill the criteria should be written to a flat file.
Can you help me on this?

Your SORT product will do this for you.

Please search the DFSORT & JCL forums for numerous examples.

not the way the question is posed
You can use Your sort product ( dfsort or syncsort )

there are lots of samples around using the INCLUDE/OMIT sort facility
search the forums using for example "VSAM KSDS SORT" checking the box search for all terms

You can use FILEAID or SORT utilities for this.If you want to do it in online mode then i think FILEAID will be the useful option.For batch you can give INCLUDE COND and criterias in sort card to filter the records.

bipinpeter,

ONLINE mode refers to something like CICS.

what you mean is FOREGROUND - interactively in a TSO Session
as apposed to BACKGROUND - meaning batch.
