[SOLVED] issue with DYNAM COPY

In FOCUS 7.7.03 I'm trying to make a copy of the current GDG of a file using DYMAN COPY.
The issue I have, is that it not only copies the current GDG, but it copies ALL of them into the 1 file. If I use +0 I get a syntax error, and if I use the DYNAM COPYDD command I get a syntax error. Am I missing a parm or?

DYNAM COPY ABC.XBASE.CURRENT(0) Y123.USERID.XBASE.DATA

Have you tried first allocating the files using DYNAM ALLOC, then using DYNAM COPY with the DD names instead of the DSN names?

DYNAM ALLOC DD INFILE1  DS ABC.XBASE.CURRENT(0) SHR REUSE
DYNAM ALLOC DD OUTFILE1 DS Y123.USERID.XBASE.DATA SHR REUSE
DYNAM COPY INFILE1 TO OUTFILE1

That's great! I still remember my mainframe stuff from decades ago.

Please edit your original post and change the title to:
