I have a file with extension path (i.e., in the volume column the extension is path). I want to copy the file. I'm not able to find (file length) information about the file. Can any one please help me out to solve the problem?

Hello ramkris and welcome to the forum,

Please explain what this means:

in the volume column the extension is path
Posting an example will probably help us.

How are you trying to find this information? When you try, do you receive an error or is the information simply incomplete? Posting what you receive when you try wil also probably help.

How is this related to COBOL?

For every file there is one column for the volume specification suppose for VSAM file the volume specification is VSAM.Similarly for the file i mentioned above the volume specfication is path.
Quote 2
Just putting I before the file ( usual way to view info about a file)there is some 8 options like alias,alternate index ,cluster ,non vsam,GDG,data,page space,index and the path option is only end with return code '0' whereas all other end with return code '4'.
I am not facing any error .

Should the title of this thread contain the word "VTAM" or "VSAM"?
Please do a full listcat on the dataset and post it here. That listing will go a great way to solving your problem.
