RE:Skip first n records and last n records in a file


You can easily skip records from top by using SKIPREC command. But for skipping records from bottom, you may consider the following 
 -Add a sequence number atthe end of the file(using SEQNUM,7,ZD as the sortcard
 -Sort the file by the sequence number in descending order, which will bring records from bottom to top.
 -Now use skiprec to skip n records
 -Sort the file again in ascending order of sequence number, to bring it back to original order.
 -Remove the sequence number using INREC/OUTREC
