Inserting and Updating Type Files through the Batch Interface
To use the INSERT TYPE or UPDATE TYPE command from the batch interface, perform the following steps:
- Place your command in the batch job stream.
- Submit the job while IBM® Connect:Direct® is running.
- Verify your results.
The following example adds a Type record named NEWALLOC to the Type file:
INSERT TYPE TYPEKEY=NEWALLOC - DCB=(DSORG=PS) - DISP=(NEW,CATLG) - UNIT=3380
IBM Connect:Direct users can then use the NEWALLOC Type key in a COPY command to allocate a new physical sequential file on a 3380 unit device that is cataloged on normal termination.
The following example updates a record in the Type file. When referring to the NEWALLOC Type key, the destination file is an existing PS file allocated on a 3390 disk pack:
UPDATE TYPE TYPEKEY=NEWALLOC - UNIT=3390
