Dear Vrch,

We can find the existance of the Member through TSO.

In 3.4 give the high level qualifier that the PDS starts with,

I.e., B0629FE.TEST.*

It'll display list of PDSs and in the command prompt type

MEMBER membername;

i.e., MEMBER HELLO

It'll display in which PDS the member is found....

Hope yu asked for this. If Iam not clear....Please make a note...

Regards

Dear VRCH,

It is working fine for me....

Please let me explain the procedure again...

Suppose if iam searching a member JAIKER in the PDS list that starts with BATCH.TEST.*

Go to 3.4 give the Dsname Level : BATCH.TEST.*

and give an enter.....This will list all the PDSs starting in BATCH.TEST.*

then in the same screen.....in command line....type

MEMBER JAIKER

This will tell you all the PDSs that contains the member named JAIKER.

Please try that....And let me know where yu gave the command....

Regards

Hello....

The process till list of PDS s its showing correctly as u told.
I specified that command in command prompt only as shown below.
Command ===> MEMBER CHECK
But still i am getting same message Invalid command.

I think there may be some limitations to our installation.
If that is the reason plz let me know is there any other way to find the same problem.

And thanks for u r information.

Thanks,
vrch

Suppose we have a PDS say TSXF955.WWESP.W001M.
You want to locate the member say member1 in this pds then it is
in the edit mode/view mode type

TSXF955.WWESP.W001M(member1) in the place where it asks for the PDS NAME

if the member is present in the pds it will open that member.
If the member is not available it says the member not available.
TSXF955.WWESP.W001M(*) will display all the available members in THE PDS.

Hi,
I think the solution given by notonly4u should work.
Suppose i have a members hello in my PDS - temp1.load.s1000, temp2.load.s2000,temp3.load.s3000 , I can go to option 3.4 and enter temp1.load.s* . This will list out the pds i mentioned above. Now type member hello in command prompt. The member name will be displayed against the pds where this member is present. Some times it may so happen that the member I am searching may also be in PDS that i do not have authorization to access. Then i will get a authorization voilation.

Regards,
Shadab

I think the MEMBER command is introduced in z/OS. That could be the reason you are getting the Invalid message.Here is a Rexx utility FINDMEM from Doug Nadel. http://www.sillysot.com/mvs/
Try this out and let us know.
