Hi,


I am not sure whether this is what you are referring to.

To delete everything from a member through one line command, you can use DEL NX ALL.

I doubt my solution is wrong.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,

Just copy a dummy file to the Sequential file.. Any other way, please suggest..

Code:
//COPY0P12  EXEC PGM=IEBGENER             
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SYSUT1   DD DUMMY                       
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=HLQ.SEQ.DATA.SET,DISP=SHR   


Hope this will help.

Thanks,
Mani

Hi friend,

U can try this also. This job deletes the contents of SORTIN Dataset,and copies into outfile.

Code:
//JOBA JOB (U,0001),'aaa',CLASS=0,MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),     
//   NOTIFY=&SYSUID                                                   
//S1  EXEC PGM=ICEMAN                                                 
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SORTIN    DD DSN=A.B.PS1,DISP=SHR                         
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=A.B.PS2,DISP=(NEW,CATLG),               
//             SPACE=(TRK,(2,2)),                                     
//             DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=800)                   
//SYSIN     DD *                                                     
      OPTION COPY                                                     
      OMIT COND=ALL                                                   
/*               


Thanks and Regards,
Suganthy.
