I am trying to copy a dataset for format U to another dataset using 3.3+C option but it says that the input record format is not known
Kindly let me know if there is any technique to copy this over to the other undefined file.

Actually, what is ur requirement?

My suggesstion is that if u want to copy the content of the dataset to another dataset requires compatibility. How can you copy like this?

what made you to copy like this?

I just need to say that the data set format should be same during copying the content. Also, he hasn't mention the destination parameter regarding rercord format.
