I'm creating a backup tool in which if there is a change in the component we are taking back up of that component from the changeman package.

The problem is that I'm able to get the create and change date of the PDS
but not its members.

Hi,

Would suggest to take a backup of the full PDS instead of individual components. I think, rather intresting is to know when the back-up was taken instead of knowing when some member was changed..

thank you for suggestion,
But the problem is that the package contains 100 components so each date if we will take the back-up it will take more space.
so we want to check the last updated date of the component and if it is the current date the back-up of that component will be taken.

Hi Pradeep,

Change Man packages are same as any other PDS on Mainframes, so if you know how to read the "change date" of some member in some PDS you can apply the same on Change Man package' PDS.

I think if you put a query like - "How to capture the change date of members of a PDS using - - -", might be you will get some better replies.

I hope this has been discussed (above said), please search the forum with author as Expat or Pedro or ofer71 or enrico-sorichetti .. you shoud get some hits..

PS. I do have such a back-up-utility available in my system but it's been provided to me by system programmers. I take a back-up of the whole package and deletes the previous if needed..
