The MOVE statement is used to begin a copy or unload operation of one or more members of a partitioned data set, followed by a deletion of all successfully copied members in the input data set.
All keywords have the same meaning and syntax as for the COPY statement.
- MOVE automatically triggers the RC4NOREP EXEC PARM option, as well as a DELETE statement, with identical member filtering, against the input partitioned data set of the MOVE statement.
- Either OUTDD or OUTDSN keywords must be specified, but together they are mutually exclusive.
- Only a single input data set is allowed and must be specified via an INDD or INDSN keyword.
- The target member groups can be specified in one or more EXCLUDE or SELECT statements.
