I'd like to if there is any way to know the date created of the GDG that's on TAPE.

Hello Raj K and welcome to the forums,

If you have the proper permissions, you could look in the Tape Management system. If you don't have access or don't know how, you can talk with your tape management people and they can tell you when the tape was created.

LISTCAT will show you when the catalog entry was added. It could be different than the actual creation date if the tape was uncataloged and recataloged. The tape mgmt system database would be the most accurate.

Hi,

as Dennis has stated, as long as you have a Tape Management System that's the best option.

Second option would be to dump the label of the tape and then LISTCAT.

I am sure that I posted some REXX code to exactly that, once again for a previously discussed topic.
