I am looking for an example of how to print an RMDS table (not a report) using program DBNMALST.

The user guide shows that a parameter list should be coded as follows:

//xxxxxxxx EXEC PGM=DBNMALST,PARM='TABLE,PAGELEN', and I provided: PARM='ITBL,0'

I am not understanding what a valid table name is. I thought that it would be the name of any DB2 system table from RMDS. However, if I specify table name ITBL, a message of DBNM331E INVALID TABLE ITBL is returned.

Can anyone explain how this utility is used and provide a working example?

Thank you very much.

P.S. It is also interesting to note that the Mainframe SpellCheck highlighted RMDS as a misspelled term! Does anyone use this product any longer?

I found the answer to my question. I was providing the name of an RMDS tablespace (e.g. ITBL) rather than the name of an RMDS table. Once I substituted the name of an RMDS table, such as 'REPORTS,0' in the EXEC statement, the step ran fine. Any table name in DBNUSER.tablename can be substituted in the step and that system table's contents will be printed.
