Hi,

Bit more for you:
EXPDT = Expiration Date In MVS, VM, and VSE servers, a device class attribute used to notify tape management systems of the date when ADSM no longer needs a tape volume. The date is placed in the tape label so that the tape management system does not overwrite the information on the tape volume before the expiration date.

Example 1
Code:
//DD7  DD  DSNAME=TOM1,DISP=(NEW,KEEP),EXPDT=2006/033,
//         UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),VOLUME=SER=663344


In the example, the data set is not eligible for being deleted or written over until February 2, 2006.

Example 2

Code:
//SMSDS2  DD  DSNAME=MYDS2.PGM,DATACLAS=DCLAS02,DISP=(NEW,KEEP),     
  //          EXPDT=1996/033                                           


In the example, the expiration date of February 2, 1996, overrides the expiration date defined in the data class for the data set.

Note: You cannot use the EXPDT parameter to change the expiration date of an existing SMS data set.

Hope this helps.
