Hi !

Contact your CICS-SystemProgrammer. He could do a report over all
DSN'S stored in the CICS-FileControlTabels.

Or he could give you the name of the LoadMember for the FCT.

Hi !

Sorry, i forgot.

If you have permission to a CEMT command you could inquire the
actual Files allocatet to a CICS-System.

Have a look at CICS-manual for all Cemt commands.

CEMT is a great solution.

Another method is to write a program that uses CICS System Programming commands, like EXEC CICS INQUIRE FILE.

Such an example can be found in Xephon.

Hi Ofer71 !

Quiet a nice little useful programm.

If i had overflown it corectly, you need to enter the logical filename in
a displayed map to get the details. Therefor you need to know all the
logical cics filenames.

I will take a copy and add an seq. file as input to the programm.
This seq.file will be created by a so called source-scanner (Rexx) which
will scan cics-programs for filenames and puts the names into that file.
Then the cics-programm reads the seq.file sentence for sentence and does
an inquire file and prints the information details to a list.

Could be useful if one is always working in different companies to get a quick overview of the files in cics environment without having cemt permission.

Regards, UmeySan

You don't have to know the logical file name in order to INQUIRE. CICS System Programming cintains the nice feature of BROWSE for inquiry commands. You can read more about it in the fine manual.
