Hi,

I'm working with vsam in cobol. let me brief my doubt.

I'm having a KSDS cluster which is having records in the following format
01 ksdsrec.
02 eno pic x(4).
02 f pic x(2).
02 ename pic x(15).
02 f pic x(2).
02 esal pic 9(5)v99.
02 f pic x(50).

while i'm trying to rewrite a record using cobol pgm, the fields are getting updated. But while issuing print ch ids(/) the record is having dots(.) in place of filler.

E006..HARIHARAN.S ..2500000..............................................

What i need to do to avoid the dots or need to move spaces in place of DOTS.

A dot in a printout usually means a non-printing character. Depending upon your LE run-time options, it is quite possible that LOW-VALUES (X'00') are being used for your FILLER. Move SPACES (X'40') to your 01 before populating the variables and writing the record, as Nic said.
