In my site i have seen alias referring to datasets. The alias remains the same even when the dataset that is referred changes. I tried creating an alias but was not able to create the same. I searched and googled but coudn't get a JCL. I need a JCL to create an alias for a dataset.

No, PDS. Let me explain. I have an alias HLQ.XXXX.PDS. When i open this PDS HLQ.YYYY.CYCLE.ZZZZ opens with all the members. We keep creating new datasets with the new CYCLE no but retain the same alias name. I want to know how this is done?

Is alias not a general term? I guess most of the shops would use this and i dont think this is site-specific. Sure I will wait for few more replies and shall ask my shop people after that.

Thanks murali for the details.

Thanka a lot enrico. I tried with IDCAMS and it worked.

Code:

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                               
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                               
//SYSIN DD *                                         
 DEFINE ALIAS (NAME(HLQ.ALIAS)         -     
               RELATE(HLQ.TEST.COBO1))       
/*
