If your shop uses RACF, this is possible.
You should currently have ALTER authority to all datasets starting with your USERID.
This solution assumes you have a RACF profile with your USERID.**
On the command line:
TSO PERMIT USERID.** ID(USER1) ACCESS(READ) CLASS(DATASET) GEN
USER1 is the USERID of the person you want to have access. You can decide on using READ, UPDATE, or ALTER.
READ implies only reading a file
UPDATE implies you can make changes and/or save an existing file.
ALTER implies you can create, change, and delete a file.
I agree with Cpuhawg...Use the command which is given by him..."TSO PE yourdatasetname ID(USER1) ACCESS(type of access) CLASS(DATASET) GEN" where yourdatasetname will contain the dataset you want to give access to.....USER1 will be the user to whome you want to give access....type of access will be READ, UPDATE, ALTER as told by Cpuhawg....
AND THIS WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU USE RACF...OR YOU CAN ASK YOU SECURITY ADMIN GUY TO DO IT FOR U.....
