i created a dataset that has lots of data in it,so when i see the information it shows 5 different volume serials are used, how can i really find out if the data resides in those volumes or where can i check how much data was written in each volume

Thanks

Hello,

You can find this information in a LISTVTOC (using IEHLIST). You will want to run a LISTVTOC for each volume that your dataset was allocated across.

If you go to 3.4 and place an S beside your dataset name, you can see the total space used - which is usually the primary consideration.

It may be interesting to see how the allocation was distributed across the 5 volumes, but there is nothing you can use the info for in your code.

First question - why would you want to do this.

You have created a dataset, it worked exactly as planned. So why the intrigue ?
