Hi,
I came across a new concern where I need to copy one month old data
from tape drive. Can anyone give a sample JCL or is there any other
way. I don't have much idea of tape drives and how they work.

Thanks,
JRY

hi j_rymbei,

Where exactly you need to copy the tape dataset.... If you wan to copy a dataset from tape to DASD?? Just use simple sort with option=copY in SYSIN and the output dataset is where you wan the dataset.(dasd).

This is what you wan???

Hi...this mite help icon_biggrin.gif
Code:

//JS020   EXEC PGM=SYNCSORT                                 
//SORTMSG   DD SYSOUT=*                                                                   
//SORTIN    DD DISP=SHR,DSN=[b]<<Tape dataset name>>[/b]
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=[b]<<Dataset name in DASD>>[/b],       
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                     
//             UNIT=(,20),                                 
//             SPACE=(CYL,(10,10),RLSE),                 
//             DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=516,BLKSIZE=0),                         
//SYSIN     DD *                                           
    SORT FIELDS=COPY                       
 END                                                       
//*                             


U can use this JCL.
Since the dataset is in Tape, the number of records might be large. So its better to calculate the number of records and allocate the number of cylinders in DASD accordingly. Also dont forget to change the LRECL and RECFM.
