Summary -

In this topic, we described about the Convert PDS to PDSE with detailed example.

IEBCOPY can be used to convert PDS to PDSEs. To convert a PDS to a PDSE, create a PDSE and copy the partitioned data set into the new PDSE.

The above task can be accomplished with one use of IEBCOPY. The below are the exceptions in converting PDS to PDSE if the PDS has below features:

  • Both load modules and non-load modules in the same PDS.
  • Individual members of a partitioned data set can be converted by copying them into two separate PDSEs, the first for data and the second for program objects.
  • Load modules that contain note lists can be converted automatically into program objects and can place into PDSEs.
  • If the members contain Nonzero key lengths.
