but Iwant to know is there any TSO or ISPF command to find number of records because I have 1000 huge flat files it wont be feasible for me to submit job for each and every file and check the count
Thanks in advance
I will read that as "This looks like rather a lot of boring repetitive work"
Unfortunately a lot of areas in IT are like that, lots and lots of doing the same old thing day after day. Get used to it.
Maybe you should ask the programmers to write record counts to sysout from the programs rather than waste a lot of time and resource reading all of the files to find out later.
