I have DSLISTs created under my RACF ID for some datasets.

If another User would like to copy my DSLISTs instead of manually creating them all over again, is there a way to pull DSLISTS from my profile? I remember Xpediter had setup option that could pull the profile settings from other user.

Any pointers are appreciated. Thanks!

Just let them know the dataset name of your dslist?

Your personal dataset lists are stored as an ISPF table in member ISRPLIST of your ISPF profile dataset. You can find the name of this dataset by looking at your current allocations (tso ISRDDN) and find the dataset associated to the DD name ISPPROF. Copy that member to your colleague's ISPF profile dataset.

If you want to copy only specific entries you have to write a small program to extract the table lines and add them to another profile dataset member.

The structure of this ISPF table can easily be examined by using the ISPF Table Utility, usually option 3.16. This utility can also be invoked by 'ISPEXEC SELECT PGM(ISRUTABL) NEWPOOL'.

Thank you Stefan.

I found that the DSLISTs are listed in ISRPLIST member of my profile PDS. 3.16 was new to me and I was able to export the lists to a dataset. However, I am not able to import it to my colleague's profile using the Edit option. (could be due to RACF settings, It was abending with RC 8 for some reason)

Also, I tried to do a straight copy but the member is being locked for edit once the user logs on to TSO. I was not able to over-write the member.

I will play with the settings tomorrow and see if I can find a work around.

Please let me know if there is any other way to Import the 'Exported DSLIST dataset'.

My mistake, did not explain it the right way - What I meant was that I asked my colleague to copy my profile.
