hi

is there any means of getting the names of all the datasets created and existing in the system.
my problem is i want to check for some value in all the datasets that are created by the batch. some 200+ jobs are running in batch and thousands of datasets are getting created. i want to get the names of all these datasets ( other than by going to each proc and seeing the datset manually ). icon_cry.gif

It could be a slow process, but you can use option 3.4 (DSLIST) and list the data sets by coding A* for all datasets starting with A, B* for all data
sets starting with B.

Depending on the size of the system catalogue, you may not be able to bring all of the data sets in a display.

R the datasets are of production? You can use a wildcard to refer all the datasets.
If soooo...the schduler might help you to find out what are the datasets creating thru Jobs.

Another approach is to write a XREF utility program in few minutes to read JCL procs from endevor or MVS lib and display Job/Step/DSN=... with suitable conditions. icon_wink.gif
