Reply with quote

Dear All,

I am able to read data from BDAM file to PS file but I am not able to write records into a new BDAM file from a PS file. I think for writing records into a new BDAM file we have to initialize it, I initialized BDAM data set by inserting and deleting records using FILE-AID then executed the program but it fails with SYNAD error.

Can anybody help in this regard how to initialize a BDAM file other than FILE-AID will be greatly appreciated.

Usually BDAM files never get initialized.

The Cluster of particular BDAM file needs to be deleted and recreate the new cluster again.

Then copy the data from your PS file to BDAM file.

Suresh

Dear All,

I am able to initialize a BDAM file using IEBDG utility with DSORG=PS and RECFM=F, here is an example for this.

Code:
//IEBDG EXEC PGM=IEBDG,REGION=8M


//SEQOUT DD DSN=XYZ.BDAM.DATA,


// SPACE=(CYL,(150)),LRECL=18442,RECFM=F,DISP=(,CATLG)


//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*


//SYSIN DD *


DSD OUTPUT=(SEQOUT)


FD NAME=F1,LENGTH=18442,STARTLOC=1


CREATE QUANTITY=6750,NAME=(F1),FILL=X'40'


END
