Reply with quote

Hi,

I am trying to get dataset creation and refference date for datasets using SYSCREATE and SYSREFDATE functions.

Those functions are working fine for PS, PDS but are giving '????' for VSAM files.

Is there any difference in usage of these functions for VSAM files?

is there any other way to do it for VSAM's ?

- Thanks,

Suraj.

Had you have read the appropriate manual before posting you may have found ........

Variables That LISTDSI Sets
Table 6 describes the variables that LISTDSI sets. For VSAM data sets, only the variables SYSVOLUME, SYSUNIT, and SYSDSORG are accurate; all other variables are set to question marks.

If you are using LISTDSI:
