IDCAMS -How to COPY VSAM data Set to NON-VSAM Data Set

Yes, you can copy a VSAM data Set to a Sequential Data Set. The below helps to achieve this:

//COPY JOB ,'your name',CLASS=class,TIME=(mm,ss),LINES=lines
/*ROUTE  PRINT node.location
// EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=A
//VSAM DD DSN=UF.userid.VSAM.DATASET,DISP=OLD
//SEQ  DD DSN=UF.userid.SEQ.BACKUP,UNIT=SYSDA,
//     SPACE=(TRK,(10,10)),
//     DISP=(NEW,CATLG),
//     DCB=(LRECL=104,BLKSIZE=1004,RECFM=VB)
//SYSIN DD *
REPRO -
  INFILE(VSAM) -
  OUTFILE(SEQ)
/*

In the above JCL, INFILE is VSAM and OUTFILE is Sequential file. You can copy VSAM data set to a Sequential data Set.
