Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a VSAM file and the records are being copied to VSAM file from a PS. So everytime i run the job, i need to delete the records from the VSAM file before copying from the PS file.

Can anyone tell me how to delete the records only from the VSAM file in any JCL utility.

Thanks

If the cluster's defined with REUSE option, you can just insert new records using the REPRO/REUSE function of AMS (IDCAMS).

But IDCAMS DELETE/DEFINE, I feel more prefered option.

You already have two suggestions with you, however, I still could not understand the question:

usage of "only" in "only from the VSAM file" is ambiguous - what exactly you mean by this?
