Hi ,

Lets assume , if we are reading a VSAM file and loading data into a table and if in between bad records comes in between and program got ABEND then how would we make sure that next time it starts from the next to bad record not from the starting .



Thanks,

Your post title is completely wrong -- SYNCPOINT is not part of VSAM, it is done by the program. And you would have to code up your program to use the SYNCPOINT.

Furthermore, typically if you want such restart capability in your application it MUST be designed in from the start; attempting to add it after the application is designed usually doesn't work very well.

You can read more on Checkpoint-Restart logic, which is very much standard.
