Hi All,

I have a GDG base, I want to see the information of that base, like LIMIT, NOEMPTY etc...., how can view it?

I tried in 3.4 option, by giving S behind the GDG base, but not accessible from there...pls let me know if anybody knows the answer..

Thanks
Venkat

Next time use ISPF Option 3.2, then the suboption V for that you need. Or, as was already posted, learn to use the TSO LISTCAT command when you need it.

Try using the "LC" command on the *BASE* entry for a LISTCAT.

Oops.

The LC command is site-specific. Here is the CLIST code that must be added to SYSPROC concat to use the "LC" command in 3.4
Code:
PROC 1  ENTRYNM                                                           
/* THIS CLIST WILL DISPLAY THE LISTCAT  ENTRY SHOWING THINGS LIKE:     */ 
/* ALLOCATIONS, BYTES USED, ETC.       USE AS A LINE COMMAND ON 3.4    */ 
CONTROL NOFLUSH                                                           
CLEAR                                                                     
LISTC ENTRY(&ENTRYNM) ALL                                                 
The CLEAR command inside may also not be at your site and may need to be removed.

Another way which I normally follows. If you have INSYNC tool. Go to INSYNC, then Utilities, Select Vsam option then give the GDG name there.
It will show the Limit, whether it is scratch or empty etc......

using the LISTCAT option of IDCAMS can also serve the purpose.

Hi,
This can be done by FILE-AID. And this is how you do it.
fa(FILE-AID) --> 3(Utilities) --> 2(dataset)

Code:
Specify Dataset or HFS Path Information:               
  Dataset or path    ===> 'YOUR.GDG'           
  Volume serial      ===>          (If not cataloged)
