Auto Generate VSAM Primary Key

Postby Falcon » Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:38 pm

Hi,
Could you please let me know if there is any option in VSAM to auto-generate the primary key, like we have is DB2?

NO!

db2 at insertion time does quite a bit of work
VSAM ... almost nothing, takes a record and inserts/updates things according to the cluster definition!
cheers
