My requirement is to find whether a particular member exists or not in multiple PDS's. I would like to know is it possible to define a DDNAME with concardenation of all the datasets and look for a particular member exists or not using that DDNAME.

Regards,
Cher

Yes, if you use the ISPF LMMLIST Library Manegement (LM) service. However, you won't be able to tell WHICH PDS contains the member.

Hi Kevin,
It would be fine ifor if i am able to concatenate 3 libraries and attach to a single DDNAME. Why because i have to find out whether a particular member is a subprogram, online program, batch program or fetchable program. In our organisation we have different libraries for different kind of programs..and at the same time different libraries for different regions (UT,IT and PRODUCTION).. so i have to concatenate UT,IT and PROD libraries related to each type of programs and check whether the given member exists in that Concatinated libraries.

Let me know if my question is valid for my requirement or not...

Thanks Kevin...

Regards,
Cher
