I have to load some VSAM files from EBCDIC environment to ASCII environment. I am using the following approach


  • 1) Unload the VSAM files from EBCDIC environment (using IDCAMS repro) to FLAT files of VB record format with LRECL= record length of VSAM file + 4.


  • 2) Convert the flat file unloaded in step 1 to ASCII mode using a EBCDIC to ASCII convertor ( COBOL module).

    • 3) Load the above file using IDCAMS REPRO to VSAM cluster in the ASCII environment. I am getting abend in the last step, which says that the records are not in sequence. Can any expert advice if I am missing anything important here?
