The main function of the REPRO function is to copy the data from one dataset to other datset.

REPRO used to load the empty VSAM cluster with records and while loading the data and index components for KSDS are built automatically.

REPRO used to creates a backup of a VSAM dataset on physical sequential dataset and later it can be used for restore/rebuild the VSAM dataset.
