Link for previous thread (just for reference):-
ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=67797&highlight=vsam+extended+addressability

Question:-

I am working with the IFGRPL macro for supporting Extended VSAM and I could see that the RBA (4 bytes) for the ESDS file is returned in the field RPLDDDD. However, I could not find any field which would hold the extended RBA (XRBA) - 8 bytes.
Does anyone has any direction for this?
