There is a format called XMIT (I think) that will let you transfer a whole PDS. There is a shareware or freeware program that will let you access a XMIT PDS on your PC. Try google.

1. mget a.b.c(*)

2. IEBPTPCH utility can be used to put all the PDS members into a flat file and then download that flat file using FTP.

Hello,

Depending on your desktop tcp/ip product, using the built-in ftp feature you may be able to point to the pds and download it into a directory on the pc. When the transfer happens, all of the members will be copied into the target directory as individual files.

You do not need to highlight the members, just the pds.

MGET is a standard FTP subcommand, and is well documented in the fine manual.
