Reply with quote

I can enter the command
Code:
tso qsa jobname 0
to merge all output files from a job into one browse dataset file (browse.jobname).

My question is can you specify the name of the output file.
Instead of browse.jobname can I specify it should be output as browse.newname.

I searched the forums here and even google for 'tso qsa' but I'm coming up empty. Any help would be much appreciated.

Ohh, and is there a shortcut to the rename option in panel 3.6?
I incorrectly guessed this...
Code:
COMMAND ===> RENAME BROWSE.DATASET3 BROWSE.DATASET4

QSA is a command, exec, or program that is specific to your shop; you must ask your site support for assistance with it.

Your ISPF Utility (option 3) menu also sounds as if it has been customized; 3.6 is the hardcopy utility here.

If Google doesn't find anything, you can pretty much assume that the command is a site-specific command. It could be a program in REXX / CLIST, or some other language.

The one sure thing, though, is that you will have to talk to somebody AT YOUR SITE to find out about it -- we don't work at your site and have no idea about qsa.

Why not use option 3.4 and rename the data set there?

Thanks for the tips!

I'm sure our menus are customized. My 3.6 is probably Robert's 3.4 which I currently use to copy/rename. You must be right about the QSA program too.

I appreciate your assitance! Thanks again for the help.


<boring background info>
I work at a satelite office for a large national company. The admins are in some far off land and basicly unreachable/unapprochable unfortunetly. My boss knows the system pretty good but most things beyond having to do with compiling / install requests are "not my job". We're just the lowley users/programmers here. My job is to write cobol.
I have a process I occasionaly run which involves running a job with different inputs which produces output files based on the jobname. I use QSA to merge those into a browse file then usually print it to compare some data. I was trying (on my own) to save paper/trips to the printer floor by renaming the file each time before I run it and comparing it on screen instead of on paper. I was further trying to make it faster by finding a command line rename function. Maybe I should reseach making a macro rexx prog to do this rename for me...

you may try TSO ISPVCALL ... and if you have it then TSO ISPVCALL second time... it should bring dataset - try to find SYSEXEC - I believe the member should be in the one of dataset concatenation ( or in SYSPROC concatenation)

We are most likely on "lock down" from most things admin related.

Yes, that one works. It lists a few pages of sys, db, and 'myusername' files.
