Not able to update vsam file

Postby arya_starc » Fri Jul 01, 2016 9:31 am

Not able to vsam file by rewrite the new values in key part.
Is this because i am trying to update the key field in the file.
Below is the code:-

FILE GMSM VS(UPDATE)                                            
GMSM-ORG                      1 03  N                            
GMSM-SCHEME-ID               22 05  A                            
*                                                                
JOB INPUT NULL                                                  
*-----------------                                              
GET GMSM                                                        
IF GMSM-ORG = 000 999                                            
   GOTO JOB                                                      
END-IF                                                          
 MOVE 'T1CCC' TO GMSM-SCHEME-ID                                  
 WRITE GMSM UPDATE                                              
 STOP.                                                          
 *          

 


Here the file is already catalouged and the field i try to update is the key part of the file.

Who knows? You have not provided any error messages.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

changing - as You say - the key part of a record means that You are inserting a NEW record, NOT updating an existing one.

so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

With Enrico's comments and advice you should be abke to understand what has happened and you can then formulate a correction to your code. The error messages (the last 2 lines that you posted), when YOU look them up in the appropriate manual(s) should confirm Enrico's comments.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
