Delete multiple GDG bases

Postby gildan2020 » Fri Jun 06, 2008 8:07 pm

Hi,

I am writing a JCL to delete GDG bases.

I know the command is as follows:
Delete DSN.GDG      GDG PURGE FORCE

But that works for only one GDG base entry, how do I delete multiple GDG base entries having the same name, ie DSN.**?

I tried to use a pattern like DSN.** but it didn't work. Pls help.

Hello,

Either by hand or by creating a list of datasets using listvtoc and editing it, you can create a delete statement for each gdg base you want to delete.

I do not believe idcams supports a wildcard delete like you want.
Hope this helps,

try this
//job statement
//step01 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
//DELETE GDGNAME FORCE
/*
//
GDG IS DELETED . THE FORCE COMMAND WILL PHYSICALLY DELETE ALL THE PARAMETERS RELATED TO THAT GDG............
