Hi,

The PDS SYS6.A.MTC220.TBLLOAD is showing ALIAS as the Volume name
SYS6.A.MTC220.TBLLOAD *ALIAS

and if I browse this PDS its showing another name as SYS6.A.CICS220.PDO0601.TBLLOAD

How to create thesee type of PDS..?

Thanks
Shri

This is the main Volume. It is created by the installation itself... u cant create it only when u create a new VSAM or a new installation..

Hi Shri,

As far as I know ALIAS is used for PDS members, not the entire PDS. The IBM utility IEBUPDTE has the capability to assign an ALIAS to a PDS member. Check the link below.

Hi,
I went thru this post and had a doubt.
Now after I create an alias for my PDS, will the changes in the alias get reflected in the parent PDS...? Or is it an independent entity....?

Cheers,
Rarvins

when you open or list the alias PDS, Actually it will access the parent PDS.. It's an alias name for the PDS.
