Post by RekhaRani » Mon Jun 08, 2015 4:55 pm


I want to modify column value in a VSAM file using file-aid. There are moer than 100K records in teh file. And I have to modify the entire file for a particular value, can I do that using file-aid.

If you want do it in batch, following job should help you:

Code: Select all

//FILEAID EXEC PGM=FILEAID                                
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*                                    
//SYSIN    DD  *                                          
$$DD01 UPDATE IF=(1,EQ,C'VALUE1'),                      
If you want to do it online, it's pretty straight forward - C ALL 'old value' 'new value' should also do. (unless you are working with packed decimal)
