VSAM Alternate Index Path Access to CICS

Postby bluepurple » Fri Jul 31, 2009 5:34 am

Hi,

I have a VSAM path that has a declared DD in CICS. I need to extend it from being opened in CICS.
Does this mean that I need to open also the base VSAM file for this path so I can access the path?

Thanks

thanks. I'm removing the file from being close,disabled to CICS. It is a path entry file. I would like to ask if I need the main/base file to be open to CICS also to be able to access the path entry file.

Thanks

Are you saying that you wish the file to open to both CICS and another application at the same time.
