Om, I think you need to do more research into what information the LISTCAT function does provide. I am NOT a storage management expert, but I do know this from other forums on the same subject:
The only way to get the name of the job that created a particular dataset is via the system's SMF records, IF your systems programmers have enabled SMF accounting for that particular event. There is no known way to get the time a dataset was created.
However, if the dataset in question is on tape, this information MAY be available from your tape management system (CA-1, TLMS, etc.), but you will have to check into that yourself or consult with your own in-house storage management expert.
