To delete a segment in an IMS DB & create XREF using INS

Post by komal_thiyagarajan » Tue Mar 23, 2010 9:56 pm

Hi Folks,

Can someone help me for my 2 questions?

1.I would like to know the option to be used in INSYNC for IMS to delete a segment in an IMS database?

2.Also I would like to know how to create an XREF to view any segment data in a viewable form. Presently I don't know to create it and I could see the data in HEX format only in INSYNC for IMS.

Thanks in advance.
