If EZT is Turing complete, it is possible, which is the only possible answer for your completely incomplete question.

What the flipping 'ell is an "SE" file?

You did not answer this question -- "SE" file is not standard terminology so nobody responding on this forum has any idea what you mean by the term. If you mean sequential data set (z/OS only has files on tape and in Unix System Services -- everything else is a data set), then you should say so. Using non-standard abbreviations is not a good way to get your question answered.

You asked a yes / no question in your original post -- yes, it is possible (depending upon what you meant by "SE" file). Depending upon what "SE" file means, you may have to read the entire input data set, and write to a new (different) data set every record except the one you want to delete, but you didn't provide enough information in your post for us to help you identify a precise solution.
