Reply with quote

Hi,
I have a variable block sequential file with record length min 800 - max 1000. file is defined as VB lrecl=1004. I want to edit data through fileaid.

one of the records in the file is 850. i want to add 50 bytes to that and make it as 900. but file aid is not allowing to add those bytes.

how to change a record lengh of a record in variable block seq file.
For maximum length records, it is showing only 1000 bytes not 1004.
i cant see (first 4 char) record length of a record in file aid.

give me your suggestions to update thru fileaid

Hi Raghunathn

I'm not sure if there is any way in FileAid to edit a record's length for a VB file.

But for the second question you've asked -- the 4 bytes for a VB file is used for indexing and is not available for data. So if a VB record has 504 bytes as record length, it means its max LRECL available for data entry is only 500.

Rgds,
Ramya

Hi Raghu,

If you want to edit a VB file, you need to take a repro of VB file to a FB file through IDCAMS and edit that particular record in FB file and do
REPRO with REPLACE option.. into your original VB file.
So now you are able to see 850 bytes in VB file for particular record.

And regarding your second question answer given by RamyaArun is exactly correct...

Thanks,
Reddy....

REPRO is a command and we have to specify in IDCAMS is it?

Use a copymember in formatted view.
In the formatted view, there will be a field for record length that you can change.
