Hi ,

I have written sample rexx to check the given dataset name contains the below strings .
Code:

pds.1  = 'load'   
pds.2  = 'cobol'   
pds.3  = 'ddiomap'
pds.4  = 'cntl'   
pds.5  = 'copy'   
pds.6  = 'dbrm'   
pds.7  = 'dclgen' 
pds.8  = 'proc'   
pds.9  = 'psb'     
pds.10 = 'rundeck'
pds.11 = 'tcm' 

dsname  = ‘AAA.BBB.COBOL’

DO I = 1 TO 11
  IF POS(PDS.I,DSNAME)  <> 0 THEN   
  do                                 
       SAY DSNAME
  end 




Is that possible to check multiple strings at one time by scanning a pds name ?.

Thanks
Balaji K

IIUYC I believe that is what your code does

*IIUYC = If I understand you correctly

WHy not use ISRSUPC - it already exists and is far more efficient that REXX

I think the question is about the name of the PDS rather than the contents of the PDS. If my understanding is correct, ISRSUPC is not correct.

Are you looking for something like this?
Code:
/*REXX*/                                                               
STR = 'LOAD,COBOL,DDIOMAP,CNTL,COPY,DBRM,DCLGEN,PROC,PSB,RUNDECK,TCM'   
                                                                       
DSNAME  = 'AAA.BBB.COBOL'                                               
X=TRANSLATE(DSNAME,' ','.');                                           
LQUAL = WORD(X,WORDS(X))                                               
                                                                       
IF POS(LQUAL,STR)  <> 0 THEN                                           
 DO                                                                     
   SAY DSNAME                                                           
 END                                                                   
EXIT
