Copy from Librarian dataset to sequential

Postby hpawar2 » Fri Oct 23, 2015 6:41 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to copy a single COBOL member from librarian to a PS file using JCL. It is copied to PS file with expansion of -INC members. That is, my PS file contains all the -INC members in expanded form. I want to copy it without expansion. Here is the code I used :

1) Tired to use IEBGENER but it gives expanded -INC :

//LIBMEM EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSUT1 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&MASTER(XXXXXX),SUBSYS=LAM
//SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *


2) Tried to use AFOLIBR but this also gives expanded -INC :
//EXTRACT EXEC PGM=AFOLIBR,PARM='NRJS,NJTA'
//OSJOB DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//MASTER DD DSN=&&MASTER,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
-OPT UTILITY
-EXTRACT XXXXXXX
-EDIT /-INC/=INC/
/*

3) Tried to use AFOLIBR with INCASIS but this also gives expanded -INC :

//EXTRACT EXEC PGM=AFOLIBR,PARM='NRJS,NJTA'
//OSJOB DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//MASTER DD DSN=&&MASTER,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
-OPT UTILITY
-EXTRACT XXXXXXX INCASIS
/*

Searched it in many places and got that there is some restriction on -INC with AFOLIBR and the way is to edit and make it =INC instead of -INC but that is also not working. I am not sure what I am missing.

Thanks!

From the CA-LIBRARIAN batch reference manual:
The -EXTRACT Utility control statement copies all the data records of a specific level
of the named member into the jobstream file (OSJOB for MVS or JOBSTR for
VSE). -EXTRACT copies the data records to the jobstream file without
opening the master file for update. -INC commands embedded among the data
records are expanded during the copy process.
Instead of EXTRACT, why not try PUNCH or PRINT?

Please have the good manners to not tag your problem onto someone elses. Did you read the forum rules? Topic split.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
