Hi All,

I have a requirement to create a batch job to close and reopen the VSAM file.

I already got some existing JOB to do the same but not clear with the values passed in PARM.
Code:

//STEP1     EXEC PGM=IMFSUBEX,                           
//   PARM=('SS(value)    EXEC(CLOSFILE VSAM-file-name)',         
//   'TARGET(region)                  WAIT(YES) O(RACF)')


Can any one explain me the above utility and parm parameters?

Thanks in advance
Raj

Try getting different software that allows for close/open
of files from either JCL or within your batch COBOL programs.

IBM used to have a SupportPac named "CSF1", for Closing/Opening files from Batch, using EXCI, but (<sigh>) it's been withdrawn.

Maybe somebody has a previous downloaded copy they can send you?

It was free from IBM when offered so you wouldn't be breaking any rules....
