My apologies if this is not the proper section to ask but I could not guess where else to post this question.
I am trying to determine a way to create (from a program) an input file that I will make to Insync somehow and make it extract one or several root keys off an IMS Database. I wasted time using the SSA control statement thinking it would work but gave up.
I have now located something called KEYFILE which appears to be a DDNAME but the documentation is poor and it does not go into enough detail to even determine if this is the way to go.
Has anyone used KEYFIELD or maybe it is #KEYFIELD? Not sure. How does it work? What should be the layout? Does nayone have a link to documentation about KEYFILE? etc
I could make a program build the file if I know the layout. I would then execute an Insync Step that reads the file to extract the roots and their children. This is a repetitive task that I need to do often.
