Lalitha,
Access rights of datasets can be given from the security products setup in your shop.

I guess acf2/racf or check any other product using at you shop and contact the admin team to get access.

... How do i do this in tso ...

tso is irrelevant to the issue

/security consultant opinion on
never on a forum ask for securilty related commands
never on a forum post security related commands
if the user has a need to know/do he/she shoud be given proper training inside his/her organization
/security consultant opinion off


as a general security issue users should never fiddle around with personal datasets security settings
- like give access to other users, ...

if data needs to be shared its a security/standards group responsibility to provide the proper infrastructure

there are legal and auditing issues ...
users are responsible of the content and use of personal datasets.
add as many tricky issues as You want

You are warned icon_biggrin.gif

Users have ALTER access to datasets with their userid as the HLQ.

It is perfectly OK to allow users to READ your personal datasets since you own them.

See this link.
