Hi sandeep,
I think you can't increase the space when the PDS is in use. You can increase the space in the job where the PDS is being created before submission of the job.

Thanks Amrita,

that means there is no solution except to create another pds with more blocks and copy all the members into it....how boring....


anyway thanks for your solution...thanks a lot..

Yes,

You are having only option of Compressing (Z) it.
No way to Increase the size of PDS.


Regards,
Siha.

There are third-party products available that can perform this function (PDSMAN, DP-Technician, StarTool, STOP-X37).

There is a freeware package available from the CBT Tape called freePDS:
