Copy to a flat file and then open the flat file to view the contents.

Tapes are meant for backups. You can view the data only by copying the data back to PS.

Tapes might be archieved after a couple of weeks(decided by tech support), you can get the volume label to refer the tape you want to retrieve.

Thanks,

A couple of points here, nothing serious, just me being pedantic for a change.

1) Flat file / PS. A tape file is a flat file or PS - it can not really be anything else. I'm sure that you both meant DASD file.

2) Tapes are not only used for backups. We use them for lots of different reasons like archiving records deleted from online master files, or for some huge master files which are not feasible for DASD residency.

Thanks expat for correcting us.

I meant DASD. To my knowledge tapes are used for backups and for restoring the data. nice to hear one more view regarding this.
