'ish'. WHat I mean by that is for the thing to be bootable all the correct files need to be at the beginning, this is likely where you ere going. What you CAN do, however, is dup the data portion by using the 'Start Sequence Number (FROMSEQNBR)' parameter and thus consolidate them that way.

If you think about it, old tapes to new tapes you can often get 10 or more to 1 and that's if the old ones are mostly full!!

Be aware that you cannot "consolidate" SAVSYS tapes. they must start at

After all these years I learned something new about the DUPTAP command.

There's a TOSEQNBR parm where you can say TOSEQNBR(*END) and it will
add to
the end of the destination tape. I have a number of archive tapes I
decided to consolidate and that will make my life easier.

Since I learned something new, I can go home now. :)
