I need to check the file existence in jcl.. right now we are using LISTCAT in IDCAMS... due to some upgrade we can't use LISTCAT.

So please suggest me the utility other than LISTCAT.

Hello Sandeep and welcome to the forums,

It would be good to understand why IDCAMS can't be used "due to some upgrade ".

What kind of upgrade might "unplug" IDCAMS?

I hope they don't unplug IEFBR14 also.

Yup, that could get ugly. . .

Maybe a module called IEBGOBAK will replace it. . . icon_wink.gif
