In what was do you want to "check" it? You can always use IDCAMS...

Madhavan, are you aware that VSAM files are treated differently if they are empty (never had a data record written) and a file with no records (but has had a record written and deleted). An empty VSAM file cannot be opened for input -- period. A VSAM file with no records can be opened for input.

Madhavan - please search the forum (and use google) before posting questions. Some, if not all, of your questions have been asked before and the information is 'out there'
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
