At the first place, I couldnt understand fully what you meant by finding no. of records directly from a dataset. Did you mean that you have a ds in hand and you want to know how many records are there without coding thru programs?
Well, the simplest way then is to browse the DS (rather the file), and see the count against Line number on top as you pass M in the command line and then hit F8(this is the hot key to reach end of file).....tht gives you the no of records tht file contains..
hi sorry for inconvinience for you if the dataset is in DASD ok if it is in tape then we have to copy into DASD then we have to follow the same as above you mentioned ok i think you will get the clear idea
