RENAME member

Postby manesg » Tue Sep 15, 2009 1:23 pm

I'm trying to rename a member - jcl below

//RENAM JOB (PS),'PS-RENAMEDEL',CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IEHPROGM
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
RENAME MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDL) -
MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDLOLD)
//*


I get the below error in SYSPRINT:
__________
SYSTEM SUPPORT UTILITIES ---- IEHPROGM

RENAME MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDL) -
IEH202I INVALID KEYWORD OR CONTROL STATEMENT SYNTAX

MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDLOLD)
IEH201I INVALID REQUEST... STATEMENT IGNORED

UTILITY END
_______

When i replace the keyword RENAME with ALTER in the jcl, i get the following
___________
SYSTEM SUPPORT UTILITIES ---- IEHPROGM

ALTER MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDL) -
IEH201I INVALID REQUEST... STATEMENT IGNORED

MBOLT.MTEMPX.M7AWXX.DATA04(BATDLOLD)
IEH201I INVALID REQUEST... STATEMENT IGNORED

UTILITY END
________

At first iam trying with one member. Eventually i need to rename couple of members in the same dataset.
(Iam trying to automate this process, as currently iam using the ispf menus to do the same, which is time consuming)
Or any other method?

Any leads?

thanks for your time.

The two best ways I know of are:

1. The TSO/E RENAME command.

2. The IDCAMS ALTER command.

Thanks Mr Spock.
I used IDCAMS ALTER and successfully renamed the member.

IEHPROGM will also work if you use the correct syntax. There is a separate parameter for MEMBER= .

Check in the Utilities manual.
