hi,

i want to catalog a list of datasets into a single dataset.
for example: my files would be of the naming convention:
"HLQ.MY.DATASET.MMMDDYYA.COL"
"HLQ.MY.DATASET.MMMDDYYB.COL"

So, when i give "HLQ.MY.DATASET.*" all the datasets that start with this name should be written to another dataset using JCL.

Note: I cannot use REXX.

Thank you,
Deepa

It is not at all clear what you want to do. Please explain your requirement fully.

Why do you want to do it in JCL.

There is a command called SAVE, which might worth trying.

using JCL, i want to copy as set of datasets that start with a particular name.

for eg: if ig give, HLQ.MMM.MYDATA.* , then all the datasets that start with HLQ.MMM.MYDATA.* should get copied to a PS file.

i should do this in JCL for a daily job. please let me know if this is still unclear!

Have you looked at IDCAMS LISTCAT ?

And why can't you use REXX
Take a look HERE - it's one I've written earlier

I saw your post. but unfortunately, I can't use REXX in this particular JCL code. (My client says so).

I tried IDCAMS LISTCAT, but for that I have to give the entire file name!!

is there no way other than REXX?

Well, your client is crazy !!!

Take a good long read of the IDCAMS manual and pay particular attention to the LEVEL parameter.

Why can't you code a (non-REXX) program and use the ISPF LMDLIST Service to create a list of datasets based on a specified wildcard? There was a recent topic here.

Hi Deepa,

You can use the following JCL, surely it will help you.

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=Give the output dataset name,
// DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
LISTCAT LVL(HLQ.MY.DATASET) NONVSAM
/*
Thats all. Instead of NONVSAM you can give ALL keyword also. It will list all the dataset name with this same qualifier. I used this JCL. This is simple and best.


Thanks,
Santha.
