ISPF option 3.4 ( Data Set List Utility) show last referenced date, Select initial view 4 (Total) or you can toggle using PF11(RIGHT).

Code:

Enter one or both of the parameters below:                               
   Dsname Level . . . VSAMFILE.NAME                       
   Volume serial  . .                                                   
                                                                         
Data set list options                                                   
   Initial View . . . 4  1. Volume       Enter "/" to select option     
                         2. Space        /  Confirm Data Set Delete     
                         3. Attrib       /  Confirm Member Delete       
                         4. Total        /  Include Additional Qualifiers
                                         /  Display Catalog Name         


Code:

Command - Enter "/" to select action                  Message           Volume
 Tracks %   XT Device  Dsorg Recfm Lrecl Blksz  Created    Expires    Referred
          Catalog                                                             
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         VSAMFILE.NAME                                   *VSAM*
                        VS                                                     
          TESTA.ICFCAT                                                         
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         VSAMFILE.NAME.DATA                               OCA031+
    15   ?   1 3390     VS   ?         ?     ? 2006/10/25 ***None*** 2006/10/26
          TESTA.ICFCAT                                                         
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         VSAMFILE.NAME.INDEX                              OCA031
    15   ?   1 3390     VS   ?         ?     ? 2006/10/25 ***None*** ***None***
          TESTA.ICFCAT                                                         


or just put 'S' in 3.4 option beside the .DATA component of file.

Hi MFRASHEED,

Thanks for your response. What I am looking for is, last update date and the 3;4 option is going to give me the last reference date (which might be the date when the data set was reffered but not updated).

thanks

David.

You would need to interrogate SMF records.
