I think the TS wants to run an IEBPTPCH PUNCH TYPORG=PO command to write the PDS to a sequential dataset, write a program to transform the sequential dataset to IEBUPDTE input with the new record at the appropriate place, and then rebuild the PDS, or create a new PDS, which is much safer. Of course, I'm assuming the PDS contains 80 byte logical records, anything else is more complex, and I'm also assuming the TS has some programming skills, which may be assuming too much. This program would not be very complex.

IEBPTPCH and IEBUPDTE are documented in the Utilities manual in the DFSMS bookshelf for the z/OS release the TS is running.

This is just a proposal for something the TS should be able to do. A more direct solution would require an Assembler program of some complexity, which is almost certainly beyond the probable skill set of the TS.

Even so, I suggest that "Other Mainframe Topics" is much more logical than "Suggestions & Feedback".

  • It probably is not possible.
  • You are asking for the work product of professionals. These professionals expect to be paid. The typical payment is currently in the range of 1,000 US dollars or 1,0000 Euros per day.

Also, your description of the task is awful.

What line do you want to insert. Is it a static line, i.e. it will always be the same, or is it dynamic, i.e. will change on certain conditions.
Where do you want to insert this line, again static position or dynamic.

Unless you take the effort to detail a request then all we can do is guess and waste everybodys time.

As per the comment by Steve Myers, you may find that my rate of 750 euros per day is quite competitive :mrgreen:

You could use a Edit macro and be a little more clear with the requirements
