We are currently using fileaid to copy an entire pds to a sequential file for processing in another step. All the sequential file will have after the fileaid is the text contained in the all the pds members.
Fileaid will no longer be available to us later this year so we are converting all fileaid to something else.
99.9% of the jobs are done but i have one that i'm stumped on:
Pds i/p is PO , FB , lrecl=485, blk=27645
I've tried IEBGENER & IEBCOPY & IEBPTPCH, nothing works.
gener gives me the following which doesn't make sense, maybe because the dd points to pds without a member name:
DATA SET UTILITY - GENERATE
IEB351I I/O ERROR ,XX15168S,IEBGENER,3A06,D,SYSUT1 ,READ ,WRNG.LEN.RECORD,00001D7C000E00,BSAM
IEBPTPCH doesn't like the fact that the o/p is not 80 or 132.
IEBCOPY unloads the dataset but puts it as recfm=VS which is not usable to the app.
There has to be a way to do this & it's making me nUtZ.
