Usually we use 'I' or 'S' in the Command Area to view the information about the DASD datasets.

How to view the information of TAPE datasets. Is there any commands like such used to view the DASD datasets.

Thanks in advance. icon_smile.gif

In our shop issuing "MYTMS" provides the info. This can be typed against the tape file name. I am not sure whether its standard.

I tried issuing "MYTMS", the command is not recognised.

Is there any other way?

I need this because i have to find the LRECL and RECORD FORMAT of the TAPE dataset as it has to be copied to DASD dataset.

To copy to DASD, it will automatically pick up the LREC and format of tape file. Just use IEBGENER.

To see the tape chara, another option is to use Ca-1 utility. Do your shop have it?

You may check the job that creates the tape dataset to obtain the attributes.
