Is it possible to view a VSAM File (like browse) in TSO without the aid of FILEAID or other tools?

You cannot view VSAM files in the standard ISPF edit panel.

If your shop does not use online FILEAID, try looking for an alternate menu off the primary option screen to see if you have something like a "VSAM UTILITY" option.

Hi,

Throug ISPF panels also we can browse a vsam dataset.

Instead of 'B' (Browse) enter 'print ids(/) char' against a VSAM dataset.

Hi ,

I am getting such a message of " command failed " .
So , how do we enter this command 'Print Ids(/) char' . Please explain the same.


Code:

DSLIST - Data Sets Matching SYSPGRP.VZS2.IMS2.VWLLES30          Command failed
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR 
                                                                               
Command - Enter "/" to select action                  Message           Volume
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         SYSPGRP.VZS2.IMS2.VWLLES30                                     *VSAM*
'PRINT IDS(/) CHAR'   SYSPGRP.VZS2.IMS2.VWLLES30.DATA              Y2VK76+

If you have DITTO in your shop, try the command DITTO VB agains the vsam name.

There is an option to define an edit utility to be used. This utility will be invoked when you try E agains the dataset. To define it, your system programmers need to update the ISPF Configuration Table.

Hi,

Do not include codes for 'PRINT IDS(/) CHAR' and try.

Thanks.
