Hi All,

I used PRINTCHECK and gave GDG base name as parameter but it is checking only latest GDG version. My requirement is to check if data is present in any of the GDG versions.

Appreciate if any one can help on this.

Thanks,
Reddy

Perhaps some in-house utility.

Reddy-kun appears unaware that if the GDG base is referred to in the JCL without a relative or an absolute generation (not version) number, all generations (not versions) will be concatenated in (by default) LIFO order.

I use the SRCHFOR command in ISPF, or my own home-grown utility (using Syncsort) for large files that I can run in batch and specify a specific location.
