How are you planning on doing this? In general, a file in z/OS does not have any field indicating the creator so I want to find out what process you're going to use to derive this data.

In Mainframes. All files created by a user will have his/her ID as high level qualifier.

So, I want to get all such files which have a perticular user ID as a high level qualifier.

EX: <HLQF>.* will give all files created by user ID : HLQF.

I want to code REXX EXEC which does this.

SYS1.SAMPLIB(IGGCSIRX) and off you go. It accepts all * ** % and %% file filtering capabilities.
