Hi,
I have a question regarding getting current date as a last qualifier of my dataset. Already i have created the dataset 'TEST1.D130606' (DDMMYY) with date. Daily, it'll be changed with current date. i want access that current date dataset name automatically that too daily.

So how can i do this? I know there should be a REXX part to do this.

I am able to get the current date from REXX code. But how to put that date as a symbolic parameter in my dataset. that is question mark to me.

Please suggest or let me know the procedure.

Thanks & Regards
CSR.
