Hello,

While looking at the output in sdsf, you could enter XDC next to the job which will copy the sysout to a dataset. (See Bill's more complete info below).

To clarify, the XDC command goes in the NP column next to the job, not on the Command Input ==> line.

If you want just the listing, first do a ? next to the job to see separate sysouts.

My compile job has a step to copy the compiler listing to a member of a PDS. That way, you know that the dataset is current. Otherwise, you may forget to copy some programs.

Hi Sashi,

As suggested earlier, XDC command can be used to copy SYSOUT data to a PS. But, if you want to copy the SYSOUT data to a PS on a daily basis in your scheduled job, you shall just include a DSN in the SYSOUT of the required job step.

In case if the dataset is delete defined daily and the SYSOUT data has to be referred on a later date, then you shall also have an additional step to redirect the sysout data obtained in the PS to SAR through a SORT step.

Dick,

In a SORT step, we can just use the PS as input & direct the output from the SORTOUT to SAR (using SORT FIELDS=COPY in the SYSIN)...

@ sashi !

Are you using SDSF to look at the job-output ???.

So if yes, Select your desired output at the SDSF STATUS DISPLAY
by using an "?" in front of the jobname. Then you get the SDSF JOB DATA SET DISPLAY. Enter "XDC" in front of the output-listing, you want to save in a file.

If you have a very old release of sdsf, you could use the commands PRINT ODSN / PRINT / PRINT CLOSE.
