TAA Tools

The Copy with  Deleted Records command  provides a simple front  end to
CPYF when  a copy which includes  the deleted records of  the From File
is  needed.    Options for  the  beginning and  ending  relative record
numbers are provided.  The  command may be useful when working  with or
testing applications that use relative record numbers.

Not all  of the  CPYF parameters are  provided.  The  copy begins  at a
relative record number (Key fields are not supported).

A typical command would be:


The  file  yyy  would become  a  duplicate of  file  xxx  including any
deleted records.

CPYWTHDLT may  be used  for a  file that  has no  deleted  records.   A
diagnostic message does occur.

CPYWTHDLT escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages  from based on functions will  be re-sent.  Many
of  these are  resent  from CPYF  such as  CPF2817 (CPYF  failed  - see
previous messages).
