Hi All,

When I copy one member from one PDS to another using IEBCOPY... it shows PACK ON in the PDS to which the member is copied.
Coz of this I am not able to run the fileaid on that PDS as it says, that

ER447-UPDATE OF PDF PACKED DATA NOT ALLOWED.

Please suggest me, what to do in this case?

I have to use IEBCOPY for this and I cant use 3.3 or "C" option.

why do you have to use IEBCOPY? Who mandated that you must use a tool that can not accomplish the task you need to do? IEBCOPY does not unpack ISPF packed data. Use ISPF or if you need to run this in batch, use the LMCOPY service of ISPF in batch.

I am working on automating a process, for which I need to copy a memeber in a PDS to the same PDS but in different name

for e.g a PDS A.B.C is having a member as abc123, then my need is to copy abc123 to A.B.C(abc456)

hope i am clear. Please suggest me if there is any other way to do this other than IEBCOPY

I have tried:
Code:
//COPY1    EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY       
//SYSPRINT DD   SYSOUT=*           
//INOUT    DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=A.B.C
//SYSIN    DD   *                 
  COPY OUTDD=INOUT,INDD=INOUT     
  SELECT MEMBER=((abc123,abc456,R))
It worked with PACK ON as well as with PACK OFF.
Is this the format you use?

For me, PDSFAST is running whenever I execute IEBCOPY, so I cannot know how the original utility is behaving.

I already gave two ways to do it, one (technically both) of which can be done in batch.
