As long as your source data set is sequential, you can use IEBGENER. If you don't know how to use IEBGENER, find the DFSMS bookshelf on the IBM web site and read the Utilities manual.

If your source data set is not sequential, you'll need to tell us more before we can give you a direction -- such as whether the data set is VSAM (and if VSAM, is it ESDS, RRDS, KSDS, linear, etc), or partitioned, or direct, or what? In case you are not aware, data set naming standards are entirely specific to a site, so "USAIMPIMF310.ITD.SOURCE.DATA" means absolutely nothing to me, nor to pretty much anybody who does not work at your site -- although it IS worth noting that a data set name is limited to 8 characters before, between, or after periods so USAIMPIMF310 isn't likely to be a data set name. It could be a Unix System Services file name, but that would be one of the things you did NOT tell us.
