Hi,

Please advise, if there is any method, to determine time-of-creation of sequential datasets in mainframe, specifically when I do know which job created the dataset or when the dataset is transmitted from an "outside" system.

Can some JCL utility/REXX/LISTCAT help in anyway...?

Thanks for your help and attention.

if it is an occasional need
You can do it fro ISPF option 3.4 and scrolling to the right

otherwise the process is a little more complicated

Use HIST command over your Dataset just like other commands. (HISTory of your dataset).

For Ex:

HIST_ _ _ _ MY.DATASET.IN.MAINFRAM

Then it will display Creater of Dataset, Last Ref date with time, created date & time, etc.

You can also do the same by using Short Info command, I.e. S command.

Hemant,

I think this is again a site-specific command. But there is nothing wrong in trying this.

The S command will not display the Creater of Dataset information.

Hi,
Thank you all for the pointers. But all of these are mainframe-site-specific and do not work in my case.

Can REXX be of any use here...?

Thanks for your attention and help.

Hello,

I'd suggest you talk with your storage admin people.

It is likely that they have somthing that will get the info you want from SMF records.

If you update an existing file with an ftp upload, the create date/time may not be updated in the vtoc, but the activity will be captured in SMF.

You mean that You do not have ISPF available, UNBELIEVABLE !!

You did not reply to my question,
( occasional neet, TSO foreground, BATCH, ... ?? )

in what environment/ You need to find out the creation date ?

If You could be more specific we could be of more help
