Hi,

Its been a long time since I've dealt with VSAM  --  and I cannot say I am a DB2 user...
However,  you might consider using an ETL tool to extract and load the data into your system.
 Why go through a manual process when there are tools that do it in a more automated approach.


Iway makes a ETL called Copy Manager (now known as Webfocus ETL)
http://www.ibi.com/products/data_ware/cm_factsheet.html
 (it supports 80+ databases and file-systems  --- VSAM,  Flat Files, DB2 are some of them)

There are others,   but this is just a thought ...

Sincerely,
dB
