hy ARJUN,

problem is the following,
if you want the contents of data records (not vsam records)
to be compared, unload these two vsam clusters on flat
files and make a simple compare job (3.12 or 3.13).
vsam organises itself, therefore you cannot expect that
the vsam records are completely the same....
use a IDCAMS repro to produce flat files...

To compare two VSAm datasets , you can also use the option 10 (Compare) of the INSYNC file management tool.

Thanks,
KS
