Hi,

I am working with one of my programs where i need to create a
VSAM file and put data into and this program runs on every weekend.

Is there any way i can have generations of these VSAM files under one
Base or is there any alternative such that i have all my VSAM's under on
collection.

Yeah... I did mean....

If you put same HLQ (High level qualifier) & a similar kind of DSN Name format for all data set...It would be easy further to refer those datasets.

you can refer them by HLQ.MLQ.* then giving all the datasets.

Regards,

Priyesh.
