it depends on the products installed

the only way to browse a vsam dataset in a vanilla( no z/os add ons installed )
is thru an IDCAMS print/repro to a PS datset ,
and afterward You can browse ( as in ISPF ) the PS dataset

When someone says a thing (i.e. "a cold drink would be good") and someone else says "Ditto", it means "I agree" or "me too".
