Hi all,

I got a strange requirement. I have to copy contents of the PDS members in different files on my PC. So is there any way I can copy contents of all the members of a PDS (in different files) in one go.

Thanks in advance...

FTP? XMIT? IEBPTPCH? Is this the kind of thing you are looking for?

Hi I am looking for FTP. in Simple terms

If my PDS contains 10 members. Then I have to created 10 different files on my PC and have to copy the contents of each member in different files.

Hope this makes it clear in your mind....

depends on the emulator that you are using. I have always used the up/download facility built into the emulator, selected all (or a portion) of a pds, privided a file extension (global), designated the destination folder and let it rip. Suggest you go thru the help section of your emulator.

by the way, this is not unusual. Most places i work have a pc based modeler/data dictionary - (rochade/key/or homegrown) and all copybooks originate on the pc and are uploaded to the mainframe for development. Then all the sources are downloaded to the pc for documentation.

Why not using plain FTP? The MGET command is exactly what you need...

username

quote site trail
get 'MSD.MKT.C3423.IM234DTN.QUEUE(afd1)' Q_01.txt


Repeat the get command for diff file names which you have ....
try this and let us know if it wont help
