Reply with quote

Hi,
Is there anyway in CICS by which i can do a GENERIC rewrite/update of VSAM file ?
Say, I have the KEY in my file as
AB01
AB02
AB03
CD01
CD02
CD03


I want to update all the records with the partial key as AB.
I know we can use the GENERIC option while DELETE. Is there a way to proceed for UPDATE other than doing a STARTBR and Readnext ?

Thanks in advance.
Ram

read this fine manual VSAM Demystified.
if, after reading and learning about VSAM concepts, you still have this question,
not sure what we can do for you.
