1. Use the LMMLIST service to create the appropriate member list.
2. For each member, use the EDIT service to run an edit-macro against that member.

take a look at ISPF EDIT and EDIT MACROS. SC28-1312-04
in the back is a routine called ALLMBRS. (under sample edit macros).

this is the control logic needed to access a pds directory. you will need to add a CASE or IF statement to only select members that qualify.

the code is there (with explanations).

you will of course have to create your own edit macro to be invoked as an Initial Macro.
