Why enhance Z Data Tools processing?

Enhanced processing allows end users to easily perform tasks that would otherwise need to be done by skilled application programmers, and to concentrate on business results rather than data processing problems.

The main benefit of using Z Data Tools enhanced processing is that Z Data Tools performs all data set input and output (I/O) operations for you, allowing you to concentrate on what you want to do with each data record. You can write record-handling instructions that are independent of the data file organization, without the need to write "peripheral" code for such things as I/O and error handling. This can greatly improve your productivity. Typically, when you use enhanced processing, you write small, easy-to-maintain "programs" that allow you to focus on the business task rather than on data processing tasks. You simply choose which Z Data Tools utility to enhance, and then specify the processing that is desired for each record or library member.
