Hi,

I am in a situation where my cobol program will dynamically allocate files based on data. Now after that program , one step will send the files into corresponding report directory.
Before that step I want to check what are the files that are dynamically created by the program.

Could you please suggest any utility by which we can check which are the files existing after the program ran and allocated dynamically.

Thnaks...

existing file seems a reasonable place to start as that is what you are wanting to find.
