Copy IBM/IDMS files

    I have a lot of IDMS files to copy (and rename) to other packs. I cannot
    use FDR or DFDSS. So that leaves me with IEBGENER.

    I have nothing against 'gener but I have to preallocate the files first
    before I copy them. Is there a utility or something else to copy BDAM
    files without preallocating them first? Of course this doesn't involve
    GDG's.



    Thanks.

    "I don't understand why you cannot use DFDSS. It has the ability, both in its RESTORE and COPY parameters, to specify the RENUNC [Rename Unconditional] sub-parameter which permits you to COPY or RESTORE without pre-allocating files. The new files are allocated with the same attributes/characteristics as the original datasets.
