Is it possible to delete the last five recods in sequential?

Postby ramesh4mainframes » Thu Aug 12, 2010 10:01 am

Hi,

In KSDS file if we wanna delete a particular record then we have to move that Record number to key value then we can delete. It's only possible for single record. Is it possible to delete more than one record?
Thanks,
RamS

Hello,

You posted multiple questions in this topic. . .

Yes, the last 5 records can be deleted from a sequential file, but some program code is needed or a builtin feature of some utility (like the sort).

Any number of records can be read then deleted in a ksds. . .
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Even file aid job can also be used to delete last five record, when you copy the record from one file to another ,give the option to copy from back and skip 5 records.This can be used using temporary option 'T'.
