I had taken a backup of all members of a PDS into a flat file with the help of File-Aid.
Now I want to reconvert it to original structure of PDS and its members.

Input is in the following form,
Code:
********************************MEMBER  MEM1    ************************
contents of MEM1                                                       
********************************MEMBER  MEM2    ************************
contents of MEM2                                                       
********************************MEMBER  MEM3    ************************
contents of MEM3                                                       


Expected Output:
A PDS with following members,
MEM1 with contents as "contents of MEM1"
MEM2 with contents as "contents of MEM2"
MEM3 with contents as "contents of MEM3"

Probably a REXX code could do the needful using the member line (********************************MEMBER ) to know the member name and following lines as the data into the member.

Can anyone please help with some related info.

Had you have used IEBCOPY to perform the backup then a restore / rebuild would have been so much easier.

Take a look at IEBUPDTE as a utility to rebuild from the source, or IEBGENER. Both can be invoked from within a REXX code, or the correct batch job built and submitted.

As for related info, there is a sticky in the CLIST & REXX forum which has links to all of the manuals you will possibly need.

If you need help on specific subjects, please feel free to ask.

You should have put it into an XMIT file, which may not be flat, but there two good tools to work with such files on the PC, should the need ever arise, bot can be found somewhere on the cbttape.org website.
