Could anyone help me to code a JCl which will delete all records from a vsam file except the first one.

Would probably be easier to REPRO out the first record, DELETE / DEFINE the cluster and then REPRO back the first record.

In this case i have to delete the vsam itself and have to create the same VSAM again and initialize it.

When you REPRO back the first record, you will initialise the cluster.
