Hi,

I would like to know as how to find the name of the job which creates the flat sequential file. I do not want to use 3.14, since the jobs are in panvalet and i cannot specify a pds for searching.

if it is a tape/GDG file i have the option to type V in ISPF and given the file name, it displays all information about the job creating the file, file creation date, vol ser number etc.

i want to get the information similar to tape files specified above

Thanks for your replies.

CA-7 keeps track of all files. you can try with this command. it may work in your mainframe.

TSO CROSSREF

OPTION 1 - STANDARD JCL CROSS REFERENCE REPORT
list of files and jobs creating that file

OPTION 2 - CA-11 CROSSREFERECE REPORT
list of gdg versions currently active

Code:

LDSN,LIST=USERS,DSN=GIVE.DATASET.NAME

May be try this CA7-Command.

LDSN,LIST=ALL,DSN=<filename>

It will list a set of jobs,in those jobs which has DISP=NEW is the job which creates the file.

Muthuvel.

It is LDSN not LSDN. LDSN is available in CA-7.
