Reply with quote

I have got only READ access to a GDG file(Contains more than 10000 records). I copied it into a test file to do some updates and Deletes on that file. But when I open it , it gets opened only in Browse mode.

But when I try to copy only selected records from the GDG to Test file , I can open in Edit mode.

I also tried to Edit it thru Fileaid .But I cant delete records since the the Edit method that I gave is "Windowed Edit".

Is there any way to do this Edit on my test file. other than using Split JCL??

Hi Lisa V,

If File contains more than 10000 records then we can not open it in edit or view mode, we have to open it in only browse mode.

So if you want to edit ant data in that you have to either delete some data in that and after that only you can open in edit mode.

I will suggest that you first split the file into 2 file and edit it. After that do some updation and merge it.


Hope this helps

Regards

Rupesh
