Hi,

I have a member name. I dont name in which dataset it resides. Is there any TSO command to find in which dataset it resides.
It would be great to have the answer.

Thank you,
Ravi

Dear Ravi,

You can get the PDS name from userid.*.* on 3.4 option of your ISPF.

Dear Admin,

Happy I got a reply from you. Thanks.
Let me make my question more clearly. I have a member in a PDS and I just know its name and I dont have any idea about in which PDS it resides. We have around 30,000 datasets in the region. I cant check each and every dataset. I would like to locate the exact PDS in which my member resides. Heard we have a TSO command to search it. I would like to know it.

Expecting your reply,
Ravi

Ravi,
If you know the data set name then you can go to the option 3.4 form TSO and in the DSN name you can give the PDS name if you have the rights to view that Data set it will be displayed

This may be a cmd written in your shop. Ask your systems folk about it.

Hello karavi2000,

check the following site

http://www.cbttape.org/cbtdowns.htm

On this site, you will find "File # 337 Search entire system for PDS member name-Atalay Gul " which is of your use.

Please let me know in case of any concerns

Hope this helps,

Hi,

I think you know how the PDS starts. Ex: axct.myptr.* then do the following

1. Goto option 3.4 and type axct.myptr.* .

it will list all the PDS .

2. Now you can use the line command "SCAN member-name". It will search all PDS.

thanks

1 Go to 3.4 option

Write your groups.library.*
Eg Userid.COBOL.* ,It list all the PDS under it then at command line write the Memeber name as MEMBER member_name.
Thanks

Hi,

Go to 3.4 and give one high level qualifier which displays all PDS to be searched. for example i want to search all PDS which starts with PROD then give PROD.*.* and press enter then

In the Command line give

Command line==>M memname

This command will not work for the migrated PDS. So ensure all the PDS are in Disk. Now the message "MEMBER(S): memname found" will apppear in the right side of the panel.

Thanks,
Reddy.
