Reply with quote

I was trying to copy two VB input files to a FB output file using IDCAMS.
I am getting the SYSPRINT message IEB311I CONFLICTING DCB PARAMETERS
Code:
//STEP040   EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                       
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=A931.VARI.BLOC,DISP=SHR         
//          DD DSN=A931.VARI.BLOC1,DISP=SHR       
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=A931.VARI.FIX.OUT,DISP=NEW,     
//            DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=60,BLKSIZE=6000) 
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSIN     DD  DUMMY                               
/*                                                 


First input file is 27 chars LRECL and second one is 35 chars. SYSUT2 file is 60 characters but FB. Can some one tell why DCB parameters are conflicting. Thanks in advance.

Hi Prem

Thanks. So this means that IEBGENER can only be used to copy datasets with same DCB parameters of SYSUT1 and SYSUT2 ? ie., VB to VB only and FB to FB only copy can be done.... VB to FB cannot be done using IEBGENER ?

Why not read the IEBGENER section of the utilities manual and look at the examples?

The solution for this is, you have to use SORT, converting the VB to FB.

You DON'T have to use sort, however it probably is the most efficient method.
