CA IDMS Tech Tip by Ian Hill, Principal Support Engineer, April 7, 2016.

Rebuilding user-owned indexed sets has always been problematic as it requires a user-written front end program making calls to IDMSTBLU to build the work files required by the remainder of the MAINTAIN INDEX process.

Over the years we have provided sample programs such as RBLDINDX and IDMSRUOX.

I have created a newer version, SAMPRUX1, which has some new features:-

1. Read the member records via the index or by an area sweep

2. Process all instances of the index or just one.

The program is available in Knowledge Document TEC1141084.
