Hi,
You could do a HRECOVER with a new name for the restored PDS,

Go to ISPF Command Shell or option 6 on ISPF.
enter this command

Code:
HRECOVER 'PDS.WHICH.HAS.MISSING.MEMBERS' NEWNAME('PDS.RECVERED.BACKUP')


And look for the missing members on PDS.RECOVERED.BACKUP & copy it to PDS.WHICH.HAS.MISSING.MEMBERS.

As with REXX, I think you have to build upon the HRECOVER command.

Hope it helps.

There is a utility called PDS on the CBT tape www.cbttape.org to recover PDS members. It will create members from old member space as long as a compress of the PDS was not done.

While I have never used the HRECOVER command, I have always used the PDS tool to do EVERYTHING on the mainframe... better than sliced bread with peanut butter and marshmallow !!!
I am going to go try the HRECOVER command now... ciao !!
