Hi All,

I got to copy like 200+ members from PDS to another PDS, The member names dont follow any particular pattern. I have the list of members in a seperate file - Looking out to hear about what would be the easiest way ?

To be precise how to allocate multiple members in PDS.. I could then do a repro to copy them all *-)

Undoubtedly, you will want to use a tool (your sort product, Rexx, etc.) to fabricate IEBCOPY control cards and then submit a job running IEBCOPY.

200 members? You can do it in 3.3 faster than you could write a 'tool'. What's more, if those members represent more than 50% of the total members then it is more efficient to copy the lot and delete the ones you do not need in the new PDS.

Thank you for the response Nic Clouston and Akatsukami and time.

I later copied the entire PDS and removed the unwanted members icon_smile.gif
