COBOL programmers who need to work with VSAM data sets, both from an AMS (Access Method Services) perspective and from COBOL programs.
After completing this course, students will be able to define, load, print and delete VSAM data sets, process VSAM data sets from COBOL programs, and estimate space requirements for VSAM data sets. This course supports VS COBOL II, release 3 or later, and COBOL for MVS and VM (formerly COBOL/370).
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Define, load, print and delete VSAM data sets
- Process VSAM data sets from COBOL programs
- Estimate space requirements for VSAM data sets
The student entering this course should be able to code a COBOL program and to code JCL to run simple batch jobs.
