If you're in ISPF, attempting to edit or browse the dataset, you can press HELP twice, and the message will tell you who has the dataset in use.

I want to delete that dataset. But i could not as it is showing "dataset in use". I want to know who is using the dataset.if i come to know and if they are my project mates i can ask them to come out of the datset. or if it is a job i can delete the datset once the job ends. Is there any command to know who has opened or using that dataset?
