Hi,

My requirement is to unload vsam and convert it into tabular form so that I could run sql queries on it. Basically, we are developing a tool in front-end wherein user will give the selection criteria and that tool will fetch the data. We have done it for DB2 and we want to replicate it to VSAM files.

It would be fairly easy if we could convert our vsam into some tabular structure in front end and then run the sql queries on the converted data.

Yes, it would probably be called an in-house program written by the people who wished to do these things.
