Modifying an Existing Alternate Index

To update an existing Alternate Index, open it by inserting the library name and the Alternate Index name in the appropriate fields and pressing <Enter>. Make any required changes to the fields in the Create Alternate Key Definition. Once your changes are complete, enter UPDATE on the command line and type <PF2>.

Copying an Alternate Index causes you to create a table with the attributes set in the Alternate Index.
