I have many logical files which got corrupted and do not have the source for these logical files. How do I recreate
these logicals without the source code?
To recreate indexes on logical files without having the source, you can do a RMVM on the logical file and then an ADDLFM. Keep in mind that the logical file member could be different than the file name. If you have a lot of files, I prefer to do this process with a CL program that will does a DSPFD type(*MBR) to an output file and then have the CL program read that file and do the appropriate commands.
