You can use the IBM compare utility to compare tape files, and as for viewing the contents of a tape, you will need to download it to DASD.

EComp is an independent software ( I invented ) which can cross compare any objects on IBM Mainframes : SAM, VSAM, DB2 tables, Queues, unloads od BD2 ( IBM, BMC ),extracts of SPUFI, QMF, SDSF, DDL's, Structures, apple, pear.... "Cross" means you can compare a SAM file with the content of a DB2 table, or a VSAM with a SAM, etc

The power of utility is in a nutshell : great variety of criteria ( select, where clause, mutation, tolerance, reformat, timestamp neutralisation, ... )and clear results : direct to the spot.

Check at www.evola.be

More documentation on request if really interested.

best regards

Pierre

Hi arunta !

TapeFile informations and content could be displayed by using IBM's
DITTO utility.

Have a look at Bookmanager for more informations od DITTO-Functions.

Hello,

If you ask your system support prople, they can tell you if DITTO is available on your system.

They can also give you execution jcl.
