Rexx code to create the GDG Bases ?

Postby irsnivas » Sat Oct 22, 2011 12:12 pm

Anyone can tell me the way how we can write the REXX Code to create GDG bases by reading the file where Datasets names are listed?

Use EXECIO to create a stem from the input file and then execute the relevant IDCAMS statements to build the bases

I am not really sure what you are trying to do. What file? where what dataset names are listed?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

Create a batch job to test the idcams statements to create a new gdg. Once you have this working, do as Expat suggests and generate these in a bit of rexx code, then invoke idcams.
Hope this helps,
