Hi,

I have created a dataset using parameters DISP=(NEW,KEEP,DELETE). Now dataset is created and i want to browse it. How can i browse it?

Note: We can browse by giving VOL=SER information but exactly from where i can get the volume information & how exactly i can browse the above dataset.

Please anyone suggest!!!

Hello and welcome to the forum,

First - do not use (new, keep, delete) for anything other than a "mail out" tape. Every dataset created shold be cataloged (unless there is some directed reason otherwise).

You created it, so you can see which volser(s) were used in the output of the creating job.

Once you locate the dataset, you can browse it just as any other dasd dataset.

Hi !

You could get the volume information from the JobLog after your Job has ended.

I'm confused. According to the JCL reference manual:

KEEP implies CATLG.

Kevin, that's only for SMS-managed data sets. IF the data set is not under SMS control, KEEP will retain the allocation on the volume but there will not be a catalog entry created for it. Hence the requirement to know the volume serial it is on to browse / delete / edit the data set.

I do this a lot for system data sets that indirectly cataloged -- create with DISP=(NEW,KEEP) and then do the catalog separately using the appropriate symbolic.
