Dear folks,

I have to code a rexx routine to identify the dataset is 'PS' or 'PO'. I believe LISTDS 'dataset' will give the DSORG of the dataset.

If i use the below piece of code

ADDRESS TSO
LISTDS 'dataset'

how to check the given dataset is 'PS' or 'PO'

will below piece helps?

IF DSORG='PS'

Please suggest.

Thanks,
Murali.

Yes, the TSO LISTDS command will display the dataset attributes to the terminal:

Code:

TSO LISTDS PDS
MYHLQ.PDS
--RECFM-LRECL-BLKSIZE-DSORG
  FB    80    27920   PO
--VOLUMES--
  FUSR02


My question is, since you want to write a REXX exec, why not use the REXX instruction LISTDSI which will return the attributes into specific REXX variables?

You can use LISTDSI, then ask foe the value of SYSDSORG.
