Hi,

Assuming you have provided GDG base and not allowed to use 3.4 option etc.....

How would you find the latest GDG version?

Thanks!!!!

Regards,

Hi murali,


It is possible to see all GDG versions by using command DSLIST 'GDG name' in the command line ,then it lists all gdg versions and check Latest Version.

Try issuing teh GDG base name with (0) as the version in the JCL.That would give the latest version.

Hi,

I think DSLIST command is same as 3.4.
So, in this game, its not permitted.

I am curious enough as to how this can be done in JCL ?

Thanks,
Parikshit.

hi,

Try this piece IDCAMs code which returns the details of the GDG.


//YESRNO EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
LISTCAT ENTRIES('KBY@V1.OUTPUT.RESULT')
/*

This lists all the GDG Versions.

What I would suggest keeping the initial problem in mind is (that is to find the latest GDG version)

1. Write a sort step to COPY the latest GDG version(+0) to some flat file name.

2. After the job is successful, goto the Spool and select the 'JESYSMSG'.

3. Inside this option, just search for the GDG base name... and you'll be getting the details of the GDG version used..

Cheers,
