Introduction: 

When working with an OLL member, you can use its contents to update z/VSE sub-library members.

But there is no COPY function in VOLLIE to move a MEMBER from a VOLLIE OLL file over to a z/VSE SUB Library. 

 

Background:  

You must enter CA-Vollie control statements, or data with control statements, into an VOLLIE OLL member and then apply the contents of that member against the current z/VSE sub-library. 

You need to do that by the VOLLIE UPDATE command. 

- VOLLIE USER Guide Chapter 6 - Using VSE Library Facilities 6.6 - Updating Sub-library Members. 

 

Instructions: 

to use the contents of the VOLLIE OLL member named VSEUPD to update a member in the current z/VSE sub-library, enter:

UPDATE VSEUPD 

 

The CA-Vollie control statements that let you add, replace, delete and/or rename a z/VSE member immediately from the CICS partition are: 

ADD adds a member to a z/VSE sub-library. 

ADD must precede the data that is to comprise the z/VSE member to be added, as in: 

ADD TEST.C 

data 

 

REP replaces the named z/VSE member with the data that follows it, as in: 

REP TEST.C 

data

 

REN changes the name of a z/VSE member to any valid z/VSE name that does not currently exist in the sub-library being accessed. For example, to rename the member TEST, enter:

REN TEST.C TO TEST2.C 

 

DEL deletes the named member, as in: 

DEL TEST2.C 

 

Note: If your current default file is not a z/VSE sub-library or is not the sub-library you want, use the:

DEFINE FILE= command to designate the appropriate file.
