Sequential Data to Tape (option 4.2.7)

Sequential Data to Tape copies all or selected records from a sequential data set to tape. Bypass label processing (BLP) is recommended for this option.

You can specify the number of records to skip from the beginning of the input data set. You can also specify the output record format and block size.

If you used Tape to Sequential Data to copy a multifile tape to a sequential data set, you can use Sequential Data to Tape to copy the file back to tape. The resulting tape is an exact copy of the original tape. See Copying tape data across a network.
