When you can browse a dataset using the 3.4 option without specifing the volume, then the dataset is cataloged. u can directly delete using 'D' in TSO.

Look at the Volume when you open the dataset in 3.4. U will get a clue on this.

Go to ISPF OPTION 3.4 and give the dataset name.You will see a message "Dataset not in catalog" if it is not catalogued.

Surely we can delete a catalogued dataset.You can use the TSO DEL option or 'D' option.

Go to 3.4 option and list the dataset information.There u can check for the device type.

Thanks
Arun

Hi,

How to know the volume for that particular dataset...
In order to acess the dataset we need to mention the VOLUME where we can get this and how?

Thanks in advance
Sri

Hi Nara Sridhar,

You can get all the info abt the dataset by giving ISPF cmd 'I' against the dataset.

Try to view/browse a dataset after using 3.4. If it is stored on a tape then you would not be able to browse or view the dataset. try doing that it would say "Tape not supported" .
