You could create an externally described DS over your file,
then create another DS the same as the first one i.e 

RCDDS  EDS            FILEA

RCDSV       S            LIKE(RCDDS)

Then MOVE RCDDS to RCDSV before chaining to the file again.

Subject: Move an entire record format as a whole 


Greetings;

Does anyone know if it is possible to move an entire record format to a
holding field, or DS so that I can move my file pointer (another chain)
but still access the old data?

Sware that I have done this before, but I seem to having an Amnesia
attach.
