Take a look at the COMPRESS parameter. The default is *YES. Text below is from the V5R1 CL Reference: "Specifies whether the to-file contains a compressed form of the from-file. Compression occurs when deleted records in the from-file are not copied to the to-file. COMPRESS(*NO) is used to copy both deleted and nondeleted records only when the from-file and to-file are both physical files. If MBROPT(*ADD) is specified with COMPRESS(*YES), deleted records that existed in the to-file member before the copy operation are not compressed." "If the from-file is a keyed physical file and a record number value is specified for either the FROMRCD or TORCD parameters, the from-file is copied in arrival sequence; therefore, the COMPRESS parameter determines whether deleted records are copied. If COMPRESS(*NO) is specified, the default value must be used for the INCCHAR and INCREL parameters."
