This is because some other user might be using that PDS in, to find the user u can "WHOHAS" command

go to 3.4 give "WHOHAS" , where we usually give 'M' or 'E' or v to access a dataset.so u can identify the user and ask them to release

FYI, WHOHAS is not part of the standard TSO command library. It is a third-party add-in that not everyone might have available.

Hi,

I pressed the help(F1) twice, but it is not showing anything in my mainframes. But in my colleague system, a new panel is opening and showing who has that member. Do i need to change any settings in mainframes?

Regards
Vijay
