Hi,

Whenever I create/copy a dataset, my dataset is getting saved with the PACK ON Format. I need to manually change it to PACK OFF. I tried to change to PACK OFF and then did a PROFILE LOCK and it didnt work. Any idea on how to resolve this.

==MSG> -CAUTION- Profile changed to PACK ON (from PACK OFF) because
==MSG> data was in packed format.

This is really an ISPF query.

I went through the TSO/ISPF forum. Just a couple of notes -
  • If a data set or PDS member is in the PACK ON format it will stay in the PACK ON format until you enter the PACK OFF and SAVE commands, no matter what the PROFILE states.
  • Somewhere in the TSO/ISPF forum is a Rexx EXEC that will change every member in a PDS to the PACK OFF format.
The following program will list all members in the PACK ON format.
Code:
TESTPACK CSECT                     Define program CSECT
         PUSH  PRINT
         PRINT NOGEN
         DCBD  DSORG=(PS,PO),DEVD=DA
