I noticed a dataset mentioned as below in a sysin ddname of IDCAMS

g030156.perfstat.prod(#)

However, I couldn't locate any such member in the PDF. Can someone explain me the significance of (#).

out of context it is hard to tell!
why did You not post the whole IDCAMS statement ?
what does the manual tell?
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/DGT2I290/CCONTENTS?SHELF=dgt2bka0&DN=SC26-7394-11&DT=20100629090832

and... once might have been a typo twice is just carelessness icon_evil.gif
in Ibm data management there is no PDF dataset organization
it would be reasonable to CHANGE PDF PDS ALL

A member name of pound (#) is valid for a PDS. Other than that, I don't know what the OP is looking for here.

Thanks for the info. So "#" can just be a name of the member. It cant be used to refer something like we can refer GDG generations using +1,0,-1 etc?

read the manual at the link I posted to find out about the allowed mask chars

anyway the format posted is that of <PDS>(>MEMBER>)

but since the TS disappeared we can just guess

if the TS does not come up shortly with a clarification
the topic is going to be vaporized

Is there actually a question here . . . icon_confused.gif Did you just have some spare keystrokes and thought scattering them in this topic would be a good thing?

Anything you might ever want to learn about generations (and partitioned datasets for that matter) is in the documentation. Suggest you spend a LOT of time in the documentation and if you find something that is not clear, post what you found and your doubt. Someone will be able to clarify).

Topic locked due to a complete and total inability to establish anything resembling an actual topic. . .

Enrico, yup - this one is only so muh clutter with no theme or direction. . .

And there are more and more like this lately.
