Answer / guest

The commands 'save' or 'commit' can not be used while
working with VSAM. While using program if you issue a
WRITE/REWRITE statement, the changes will made in the file.

If you opend the file using andy utility (Like FILEAID) you
can use SAVE command.Using program you can not use SAVE
command.

Answer / subramanyam

Commit not used while closing the VSAM file.

Save command will save the VSAM file content.
If you want to save the content and close the file then u
can use F3 function key.

If u dont want to save the updated content give 'can'
command in command prompt
