Hey nandini,

Can you be specific regarding the things you want to change, or rather
can you give a brief description about the case study you are looking to work.
If you can specify something regarding your requirements , we can arrive at a solution.
What exactly do u want to do?
Unlike DB2, I believe we cannot generate a copy book for a VSAM dataset's record structure.
If there are some tools I will also be on the look out.

Regards,
Siddhu

you are wrong, you can have copy book for VSAM dataset record structure (we are using those at our shop)

I think copybooks are a COBOL related subject. u should post this in cobol related post.
Anyway copybooks are a way to have VSAM datastructres as variables (e.g. file definition) when u create a copybook it will be compiled in the same load library as your program during the program compil (no need to do separate compil).

and there is no copy book for SQL. (of course u can call cobol-sql subprogram from ur main pgm).

as already said post this in COBOL related thread

hi,

just like in db2 u have to add 'COPY symbolic-mapset name' in working-storage section then u can use those fields(i,a,o,f,a) in ur program.

regards,
siva pradeep
