How to read the content of RRDS and export them?
I want to develop a assembler program to export the RRDS content into a PDS.
However, I am totally lost about how to do this.
Is there anybody who can help me on this?
Is there any programming manual in assembler for reading the RRDS content?

Mr. Sorichetti is correct. Of course, what do you mean by "export?" In VSAM, when you "export" a data set, its contents are placed into a regular sequential data set following coded information about the data set that permits the IDCAMS utility to reallocate the data set with the same attributes when you "import" the data set.
Reading an RRDS data set sequentially should be no harder than reading any other VSAM data set sequentially. See "DFSMS Using Data Sets" and "DFSMS Macro Instructions for Data Sets" for your z/OS release.
If those manuals are completely mystifying to you, I am sure there are consultants that monitor this forum that would be happy to assist you in exchange for appropriate compensation.
The reason for not using REPRO is that I need to read records from RRDS in which RMF writes RMF III monitoring data and then sort the records into a PDS.In the end, I will load the records into DB2 table using the PDS which stored the RMF III data.
I have tried to use REPRO and the output dataset's records is not available for DB2 utility to load them into DB.
This assembler not only need to read and store RRDS records into PDS but also need to sort the reocrd as the following format(structured data):

I am learning HLASM myself and I can code assembler program to make the input data as structured data as I need.
However, I am totally lost about how to read the record from RRDS(VSAM)
and save those record into PDS dataset.
