SAVOBJ
I am trying to use the SAVOBJ command to copy files to a save file. Is there a way to add to the save file and not write over it with each SAVOBJ call? I know I can create a list of files and send all of them to one save file but I would rather just add to the save file if possible. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

You can’t add objects to a savf with a command but you can with a program. I don’t know how but I’m sure if you google it you will find some help.

============================================================

Although it is (technically) possible to add objects to savefile, <i>maybe</i> half a dozen or so (outside IBM) have managed it. Review this entire <a href=”http://archive.midrange.com/mi400/200311/msg00001.html”>thread on savefile format</a> in the MI mailing list.

Best choice is simply to determine the desired outcome and work up an alternative technique. It will almost certainly take less time and be safer from the various recent system values.

    As alternative you could look into Virtual Tape. This allows you to add to the virtual tape volume. As this is based on an IFS folder sending the folder to another system will allow you to use it as a volume (virtual) and restore from there. Another great thing is that it allows you to save objects from different libraries.
