I need some help with rexx code which would delete a dataset based on HLQ. I have to reprot out datasets which the program attempted to delete it and was not successful. In the report I have to reason out why it was not deleted.
Is there a way to find out the reason why dataset was not deleted (Retrun code ??).
You can use LMDLIST function to list dataset names based on HLQ. Alternatively you can use "LISTCAT LVL" to list datasets based on HLQ.
Use DELETE to delete a dataset using REXX and if you want to capture if dataset is deleted or not(with error message), you can use OUTTRAP on DELETE statement.
