Hi,
Below is the code for copying PS file to VSAM file ..
Code:
//STEP1     EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                   
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=                                     
//INDD       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XYZ.PS.FILE
//OUTDD    DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XYZ.VSAM.FILE                       
//SYSIN    DD *
  DELETE  XYZ.VAM.FILE CLUSTER PURGE                           
  IF MAXCC <=8 THEN SET MAXCC = 0                                       
  DEFINE    CLUSTER  (NAME(XYZ.VSAM.FILE)                -       
                      KEYS(6,0)                                 -       
                      RECORDSIZE(20,20)                         -       
                      REUSE                                     -       
                      TRACKS(45,15))                            -       
            DATA      (NAME(XYZ.VSAM.FILE)          -       
                      FREESPACE(10,15)                          -       
                      CISZ(8192))                               -       
            INDEX     (NAME(XYZ.VSAM.FILE))               
  REPRO INFILE(INDD)                                            -       
            OUTFILE(OUTDD)

when i execute this im getting an error :-
Code:
  REPRO INFILE(INDD)                       
        OUTFILE(OUTDD)                     
IDC3300I  ERROR OPENING G040700.EWK84001   
IDC3351I ** VSAM OPEN RETURN CODE IS 168   
IDC0005I NUMBER OF RECORDS PROCESSED WAS 0 

BUT when i use OUTDATASET instead of OUTFILE the execution is successfull,
can anyone explain me why such error occured.

With INFILE(ddname)/OUTFILE(ddname) keywords one can specify DISP=SHR in the JCL, which allows the command to run when the other Job/TSO-user using the dataset has the dataset allocated with shared access. If the other Job/TSO-user has dataset allocated with exclusive control, your Job will not run until other Job/TSO-user releases the dataset; if the other Job/TSO-user is not finished with the file you'll observe what you see.

When you use the INDATASET and OUTDATASET keywords, IDCAMS allocates the datasets with exclusive control and your Job works.

Last, please learn touse BBcode Tags - I've edited your post to add them.

Just a guess - ISPF/START - on command line type (TSO) ISRDDN -- F 'your file' -- is it there?

the jcl posted
should have given the messages

note the sloppiness of the TS in using the same name for the three <components> of the cluster

and what about the reference to ...

The duplicate names may be a "side-effect" of "masking" the names for posting - note the misplaced "-" for the continuations.

Can't say that I've used IDCAMS like that. "JCL Allocation" of the dataset, then delete/define, then use the JCL Allocation... I don't know what that would do. Oh, maybe, I do now :-)

anyway the whole shebang is a consequence of the poor knowledge of VSAM data management .

if the cluster is defined with the reuse attribute why not simply define it once and after that use ...
Code:
   REPRO INFILE(INDDNM) OUTFILE(OUTDDNM) REUSE

Is the delete and creation of the file successful?

Can you please copy paste the entire output?

using disp=shr for the output file when doing a REPRO
is just a way to incur into lots of trouble...
use DISP=OLD

OUTFILE(ddname)| OUTDATASET(entryname)
identifies the target data set. If a VSAM data set defined with a record length greater than 32760 bytes is to be copied to a sequential data set, your REPRO command will end with an error message. Note:
To avoid picking up incorrect volume information from the original DD statement on a data set that has previously been deleted and redefined in this invocation of IDCAMS and the FILE parameter was specified on the delete, you must specify the OUTDATASET keyword instead of OUTFILE. Alternatively, you can issue the REPRO command in a different step from the step that invoked the delete and define commands.OUTFILE(ddname) specifies the name of a DD statement that identifies the target data set. For VSAM data sets, the data set name can name a path. If the DD statement identifies a SYSOUT data set, the attributes must match those specified in JCL DD Statement for a Target Data Set.
Abbreviation: OFILE

OUTDATASET(entryname) specifies the name of the target data set. If OUTDATASET is specified, the entryname is dynamically allocated with a disposition of OLD. For VSAM data sets, entryname can be that of a path.

A quick review of what you are doing:
1. Delete the old file
2. Define the new file
3. Copy a sequential file into the old file (NOT the new file)

Move the REPRO to a second IDCAMS step of the job.

Also

Can you try to delete and create the vsam file in one step and Repro in the other step?

Hi , when i gave REPRO in differnt step it worked , but cant i use in same step ... ?
I think OUTDATASET worked with same step because it makes a exclusive lock on the DATASET ..
correct me if im wrong.

Also to clarify the file i delete is same as the file i create .

OUTDATASET worked because it was using the "new" VSAM dataset.

Read what people have posted. If you have to use OUTDD, you'll need to either not delete it at all, or delete/define in a previous step.

Choice from those options is yours, but you can't choose a different option which doesn't work, and which is documented as not working.

You are wrong. OUTDATASET works because it is referencing the NEW data set, not the OLD data set. Putting the REPRO (or the DELETE) in a separate step works because you are then referencing the NEW data set with the OUTFILE. Putting it all in one step will not work because JES allocates the files before the step executes, so using OUTFILE means you are attempting to write data to a data set that no longer exists -- hence the 168 return code.

And the file you delete is the same you create -- we got that the first post. However, the file you REPRO to is not the same as the file you create when using OUTFILE in the same step. This is what you did not get.
