Hi All,

I am using PKZIP utility to Zip the file as below.

//SYSIN DD *
-ECHO
-ARCHOUTDD(OUTARCH)
-INDD(INPUT)
-DATA_TYPE(TEXT)
-TEMP_SPACE_PRIMARY(1000)
-DATA_DELIMITER(CRLF)
-FILE_TERMINATOR()
-COMPRESSION_LEVEL(NORMAL)
-GZIP
//*


After zipping , using NDM process sending the Zipped file to the customer.
But when the customer decrypt and decompress they are not archived into a single file, instead they get back a folder1/file. Actually the folder structure is created which is not correct. It needs to be archived as single file.

Could you please help me to resolve this issue.

Thank you,
Nethraa.

Try adding this statament to the control cards and see if it works.

Code:

-INDD(INPUT)                 
-DATA_TYPE(TEXT)             
-TEMP_SPACE_PRIMARY(1000)     
-DATA_DELIMITER(CRLF)         
-FILE_TERMINATOR()           
-ZIPPED_DSN(*.*,SOMENAME.TXT)
-COMPRESSION_LEVEL(NORMAL)

Have you talked to the vendor? If not, why not? I would expect, since a GDG can have many generations, that GDG compression would create a folder for the GDG base name inside the ZIP and each generation would be a file inside that folder. It sounds like that is what happened with your PKZIP. If you want other behavior, you will need to consult the PKZIP manual (or the vendor) to find out how to do what you want.

until You tell more about the dataset You are trying to zip
there is NOTHING we can do.

post the info You get from the ISPF 3.2 panel
Code:
2  Data Set    Allocate, rename, delete, catalog, uncatalog, or display
                  information of an entire data set
