Hi Pavan,

Here i am giving answer for the first qestion.

In the ISPF Primary menu, Go to the Option 3 Which is utulity option, in that go to the option 14 which is SEARCH FOR, Give the string name you want to search and the data set name in which you want. It will display the list where you are using that variable in all the members in that data set.

For reference i am giving the Procedure as follows.

1)Select Option "3"
2)Select Option "14"

Fill the Following things and Press enter.

Search String . . 'Program name'
Data Set Name 'xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx(*)

Mentioning the '*' symbol in data set name indicates search all the members in the data set.

I didn't Understood the second Question and I am Not aware of the third one.

Regards,
K.V.Ramana Reddy.

Hi,

If you have FILEAID you can directly insert records into the VSAM file.

V.FD panel has the options to BROWSE , EDIT and DELETE VSAM files.
The records can be inserted by typing "I" as you do in COBOL editor.
The records will be inserted only if it is not a duplicate record.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
