Birendra,

It is also possible to change these ID values without leaving trace of one?s own ID.In the command area against the member name or PS name, by giving ?G?, You can reset member statistics.

No. The ISPF modification statistics for a PDS member are kept at the member level in the directory entry for that PDS member. Only one ID is kept per member. Once it is changed, the old value it contained is gone. It's not reliable anyway, since ISPF option 3.5 can be used to reset the statistics to any value for user ID.

SMF records, if they are accessable to you, are the definitive way to determine who changed a data set and when, but analyzing SMF data to determine this is not trivial.

Your security system (RACF, CA-ACF2, or CA-TopSecret) can also silently audit who reads and/or writes to a data set, but this must be set up ahead of time, not after the fact.
