what will you do with this string when you find it?
Actually we have a Unique-ID which can be present in any one of these 20 different VSAM files.
For some reason I want to search one particular Unique-ID say 'xxxxxxxx' in these files.
I need to get the VSAM file NAME in which the Unique-ID is present.
In all files the Unique-ID is present at pos 1-8.
I just want to know is there any easy way to serch strings in VSAM ; like SRCHFOR for PS datasets.
Otherwise I could use SORT/Cobol to achieve this.
Thanks for your response(s) all.
