whicih i couldnt do with COBOL.
But this is possible with IDCAMS in JCL.
So I want to invoke IDCAMS from COBOL program.

Hi Pushpagiri,

What do you mean by insering a record in to KSDS? How can you do it using IDCAMS?

Thank U.

Hi,

I don't think any problems will araise when you add record '3 eeee' as per your example.

Anyhow let me try once this. Inform u later.

Thank U.

Hi,

There is nothing like INSERT in VSAM. If we write the record, VSAM will take care of every thing. The recoreds may or maynot be in sequential order physically.

Thank U

Hi Madhu,

This is my file spec:

VSAM : KSDS
1 aaaa
2 dddd
4 ffff

record key is (1 0)

Now I have "record out of sequence" error if
I try to insert(write-as you mean) "3 cccc" through COBOL
program.
You are mistaking in VSAM.It is KSDS not ESDS as you are
thining currently.

ps read the topic once again which i have quoted.

Push,

Adding a rec to a VSAM file is trivial, but there can be a variety of reasons for why you're having trouble. Since you don't provide the pertinent code (select stmt, FD, open, R/W stmts), jcl, and IDCAMS data it's difficult to guess at the reason for the problem.

BTW, did you allocate freespace? And please confine your request to ONE thread.
