Search and update using File-Aid.

Post by Manish Tripathi » Fri May 22, 2015 2:14 pm


I am looking for some help on 'sub-task' I am working on. For a testing we've to change a program name every day before we start testing. And for this I am looking for a way to mass update all members in a PDS in batch mode. As for example, I have replace say, 'PGM=PGM11' to 'PGM=PGM22'. How can I do that?
