I have only the file name not any other data
From the file name is there any way to find the file what type it is

Hi

Try this

Go to Fileaid

Use Option 3 - Utilities

3 UTILITIES - File-AID/SPF extended utilities

Choose Option 5 in the next screen that corresponds to VSAM
5 VSAM - Allocate, display, delete, modify, or rename VSAM clusters,
alternate indexes, or paths; manage IAM files

Provide the dataset name and leave the option as blank.

You will get it.

Thanks
Mano
