I am trying to delete every *.TEST.** dataset on a volume that begins with B, that has not be referenced in the last 120 days.

The LRDAYS>120 parm seems to be ignored, all *.TEST.** old and new are deleted.

Can not seem to get it coded correctly.

I have it coded as follows:

Code:
//FDRDEL   JOB CLASS=S,MSGCLASS=Q                                     
//JOBLIB   DD
//DELSTEP  EXEC PGM=FDREPORT,REGION=0M                               
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSPUNCH DD SYSOUT=(A,INTRDR)                                       
//FDRLIB   DD DSN=TECH.PTE.JCL,DISP=SHR                               
//SYSIN    DD *                                                       
  XSELECT XDSN=*.TEST.**,LRDAYS>120                                           
  XEXCLUDE VOL=(A*,C*,D*,F*,E*,Z*)                       
  PUNCH MASKNAME=FDRDELM,ECHO                                         
  PRINT DATATYPE=CATALOG,RPTYPE=SELPCH


Thanks

I can only assume that the way in which you have presented your statement, that there really is a question in there somewhere. OK, so maybe today IS psychic day ........... so here we go.

I know that using DFdss that the last referenced date is either an absolute or relative date and is dead easy to use. With Dfdss you can also backup and delete at the same time.

However, from some very very old examples in my archive

LRDAYS.GE.(nnn)

Obviously the systax may have changed since my code was last used, but you did check in the manual first .......... didn't you ?

Thanks for the reply expat. Sorry about the ambiguity, I guess I could have should have wrote the sentence "Can not seem to get it coded correctly." as "Can not seem to get it coded correctly, any suggestions on how to coded it correctly".

I will look into the differences of coding LRDAYS.GE.(nnn) vs. LRDAYS>120, on the surface they would seem the same.

The LRDAYS>120 is the technique in the FDR manual.

You are using DATATYPE=CATALOG rather than DATATYPE=VTOC or CATVTOC. The last-reference-date information is in the VTOC not the usercatalog.
