Hi Kumar,

Can you tell how you are uploading the files to mainframe, if you are doing it manually, I think there is an option to append or replace data while uploading the text file to mainframe. If you are doing this through a transmission job, then, i think you can have the first file transmitted in first step of the job and create another step using the same output file from first step, but, use DISP=MOD, so that the 2nd transmission step will append records to the same file.

Hope this will help you.

Cgurr.

APPEND is a valid FTP sub-command. However, it would have to be issued on the client side. If you are running a batch job and need to "pull" these files with a GET sub-command, then I agree with Cgurr that you should just GET twice to a DD allocated with a DISP=MOD disposition.

Hello,

If you are going to MOD onto existing data it is a good idea to make a copy of the existing data before starting the ftp process that appends data. With a copy beforehand, you can get back to the starting point if there is any problem with the transfer.
Hope this helps,
