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?
