Like Tape Update (option 4.3), Tape Record Load copies from one tape file to another tape file with the change that you specify. If you make a mistake, you still have the original data on the input tape as a backup.

Unlike Tape Update, Tape Record Load lets you start and stop copying at any location within a file. You can therefore make a copy of a file with certain records removed. By using Tape Record Load repeatedly, you can combine data from two or more input files, or rearrange the data from a single input file.
