Hi,

I am using a utility to view some type of records. Say the name of that utility is "ABC". When I open the file and enter ABC in the command prompt, the utility will unpack the records and displays the name of the fields and their corresponding values.

I want to know where from this utility is picked up. Will it pick up from the loadlibrary mentioned in the pds MYUSERID.CLIST or else from some other PDS?.

I know my question is kind of vague. But I want someone to tell me how to find the load library from where this utility is picked from i.e how to map these type of commands I give in command prompt to the loaction from where these utilities are picked up.

Regards,
Mariraj P.

I am fairly certain that when editing a dataset through an ISPF panel that you really mean to say is 'command line'

however, on the command LINE type ISRDDN
Look for the DDNAMES SYSPROC and SYSEXEC
The CLIST / REXX command will almost certainly be located in one of the datasets allocated to those DDnames unless an ALTLIB is in operation.

In addition to what Expat said,

START;6 and then

Code:
TSO LISTALC STATUS
to get the list of all the DD names and the allocated datasets. Browse through all the datasets in SYSEXEC/SYSPROC and you will find your REXX EXEC's.

Not sure what you mean by the 'mentioned in the' part of your question.

'Utility' is a broad term. It might be a program or an exec.

The LIBDEF section of ISPF Services Guide has a table that describes the search order:
Job Pack Area
ISPLUSR LIBDEF
ISPLLIB
STEPLIB
Link Pack Area
LINKLIB

followed by:
ALTLIB
SYSPROC
SYSEXEC
