Hi All,

My requirements is to compare 2 PDS for given members and it should say whether it has difference or not. And more over I tried in SuperCe but it didnt work.

Is there any simple way to do it??

Doing this should work with superce. I just tested it:



Code:

New DS Name  . . . HLQ.PDS2                                                 
Old DS Name  . . . HLQ.PDS1                                                 
PDS Member List    *         (blank/pattern - member list, * - compare all)

SuperCE is the simple way to do it. If SuperCE didn't work for you, and you post the messages you got back (maybe submit as a batch job instead of trying to do it in the foreground?) we should be able to help.

Posting "it didn't work" is possibly the biggest waste of time for everyone - both those with a problem and those who would like to help.

I will probably never understand the reluctance to post what was submitted and the diagnostic info or incorrect/unwanted results that happened.

Maybe something we can use to help will be posted. . .

the 3 dot ISPF utilities have really excellent online HELP/Tutorial info.

since the TS could not be bothered to wade thru all that info it is not surprising that s/he

Perhaps people who have never actually done any debugging don't understand what's useful for that purpose? Just a guess.

Dick,

I wasn't suggesting that you mend your ways. I agree fully with your statement that:

I was just hypothesizing why somebody might not post the information in the first place.

I hav tried using SuperCe but the problem is its not giving an exact information whether the member has changes or not. It gives me a detailed message - what are the changes, matched line, un matched line etc. But its not exactly provide a message that the members which ahs changes.
