Is that possible to take Back up of a PS which is opened in BROWSE Mode. Do we have any TSO command to attain this? This PS is being generated in run time. So I have to capture it. Please lend me your help on this. Thanks - Lenin

Yes it is possible,
No command as such,
Please give more details of how the name will be generated at runtime.

You imply it is a temporary dataset. If you need to keep it, you might try to create it with a permanent name.

Im sorry icon_sad.gif forgot to mention the below content in my earlier post,

When a jcl is expanded using JSCAN through Rexx, the output is available in Browse Mode. Is that possible to have it in a PS to find the expansion of symbolic variables from job card.

whenever you are 'browsing' a dataset, it exists, though temporarily.

simply START a new session,
go to 3.4, find the dataset (you know the name - it is indicated in the browse session)
VIEW the 'temp dataset',
CREATE a DS or new member of a pds from the VIEW screen.

To see the file in 3.4, you need to enter split-screen while the file is being browsed. Once you close the browse, the file is discarded, but it exists while being browsed.

You can copy the dataset as long as the browse holds it open.

Garry.

Stay in BROWSE, give the command "TSO ISRDDN" and look for your dataset. Put a 'V' or 'E' in front of it and copy it somewhere more permanent.
