Delete Rows

These line commands will allow you to delete a row(s) in the table. This operation will fail if the Protect Keys Indicator is set to Y in the View, since this indicator does not allow the deletion of rows from a table.

The three variations of the Delete Row Line command are listed in Table 132.

Table 132. Delete Row Line Commands




Delete a single row.


Delete a series of rows enclosed by two DD markers. Insert DD to the left of the first row to be deleted and insert DD again to the left of the last row to be deleted.


Delete n rows beginning with the marked row; where n is the number of rows from 1-999.

Confirmation for deletion may be required depending on the settings in the user’s profile (see Edit Profile on page 114).
