The EXPORT command is used to create a portable copy of a VSAM cluster. When the REPRO command is used to copy a cluster, only the data records are written to the output dataset. Before the records can be restored, the cluster must be recreated by executing an AMS DEFINE command. EXPORT copies the information required to completely reconstruct the cluster without the necessity of executing a separate DEFINE.
