TAA Tools

The Remove  Empty Members command  removes empty members  in a data  or
source  file.   An  ACTION  parameter exists  that  defaults to  *CHECK
meaning  a listing is produced of what  would be removed if *REMOVE had
been specified.

You must have *ALL rights to the file to use RMVEMTMBR.

A typical command would be:

            RMVEMTMBR   FILE(xxx)

Because ACTION(*CHECK)  is the default,  no members  would be  removed.
If  any members  are empty,  a  listing would  be output  of the  empty

After a review, you could remove the empty members with:


RMVEMTMBR escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
