Hi All,

Can anyone plz let me know how to change the LRECL of sequential file or its parameters?

And also please let me know how to modify any dataset parameters...(Non-VSAM, VSAM, PDS....) in general.

I dont think you can change LRECL of an already allocated dataset given you are not making any trick of allocating another dataset with changed attributes & delete earlier.

I alsoe agree with Priyes that there is ni trick to do it but you can change the LRECL by following method.

1 copy the data into some temp file.
Delete the original file.
Create the new File with increased LRECL
Copy teh data into it.

Hope it helps
