Just open the PDS and use SCAN 'variable-name'

Thanks

Hi Venkat and Tanden,

I tried TSO FINDTEXT 'string' and SCAN 'string'
but the error message displayed is "Invalid COmmand".

I used these commands at command prompt after opening the PDS.

Please advise as to where and how it needs to be used.

Thanks And Regards

3.14 search is the best option. Please try that....

Hi,

You can use 2 options
1. Take option 3.14 and give the search string. Give the pds name and put a * in brackets to search all members. like 'abc.xyz.adb(*)'. Press enter to start the search.

2. take ISPF mainmenu and type ez. The ezyedit screen will come where you can type the name of the PDS and select it using the number assigned to it. Here you can use "scan <variables name>.
Note: Not all shops have EZYEDIT. If it is not there, then use the first option.

Hi,

SCAN is a CA-PANVALET command for ISPF libraries, so if you don't have this tool installed at your site, then you will obviously get the 'Invalid command' message. Similarly Findtext may be a user written REXX or CLIST utility, which you will need to have in your SYSPROC or SYSEXEC concatenated dataset for the TSO command to work. You can write one yourself or get such a utility from one of the freebie sites.

To search a string in an ISPF dataset the simplest way is to run the Search-For utility (=3.14) or the Extended version of this utility (=3.15).

HTH,
Panda.

Following my previous post, may I bring to notice, another option for searching multiple datasets for a string. ISPF under z/OS provides for the SRCHFOR primary command which can be used from the command line at the DSLIST view.

Basically, you can invoke option 3.14, just by typing SRCHFOR (can be in lower case) in the command line along with the search string and a panel pops up, where additional options can be entered.

Hope this helps,
Panda.
