IDCAMS LISTCAT will tell you everything about the file.

But LISTC is LISTCAT - which will tell you everything that you want to know.

It tells you what you want to know only if you know to do LISTC ENT(/) ALL intead of just LISTC. Expat, wanna bet Srinivasa just put in LISTC or maybe LISTC ENT(/) without the ALL?

Sounds a fair bet to me. Fell foul of that one myself a couple of times too icon_redface.gif

Of course one other alternative would be amending the SYS1.SAMPLIB code of IGGCSIRX to get the info. I did it once to be able to clone all of the production VSAM delete/defines for development including AIX & path definitions. I might still have a copy somewhere. Mind you - it took me over a week to get that little bunny up and running.

Wouldn't using ISPF Option 3.2 be a more typical method to obtain the same details?

You can get VSAM details using ISPF 3.2 but it's a little cumbersome. The nice thing is you're browsing the output listing so you can page backwards!

Guys,

Thanks for your inputs.

I was issuing wrong spelling when I raised this help request. I got the problem resolved.
