Hi rambabu,
They are the SUPERC and SUPERCE options used to compare the data set both ordinary and exteded... i think if both matched it will return 0 else some other value. i m not clear..

Hi ramesh babu,
The following are the return codes for ur query:

Return codes
The default return codes from the DSM function have the following modified meanings:

0- The function was completed successfully and the compare sets match.
1- The function was completed successfully and the compare sets do not match.
2- One of the compare sets was empty, so no comparison was performed.
4- Both of the compare sets were empty, so no comparison was performed.
4- No comparison was performed because one of the input data sets or members in ISPF Packed Data format and the "PACK=SKIP" option was specified.
8- A data error occurred, for example, a key sequence error was found when using a keyed comparison. The conditions that result in a return code of 8 are:


For keyed synchronization:

key truncation error
A key truncation error occurs when a key segment falls outside the record.
key sequence error
A key sequence error occurs when the key for a record is found to be less than or equal to the key for the previous record.

For read-ahead synchronization:

read-ahead resynchronization failure
Read-ahead resynchronization fails when matching records cannot be found within the read-ahead limit.

16- No records compared because input and output physically the same.
16- Invalid data in template.
16- Data set or member in use.
16- Data set or member open error.
16- Data set or member not found.
16- Other input or output error occurred.
16- Member name required and not specified.
16- Insufficient storage available.
16- DSM abended
16- Input data appears ISPF packed but is not valid.
16- Other serious error that stops processing occurred.
16- A severe error occurred, causing File Manager to terminate.

Tip:
When handling return codes 0, 1, 2, and 4 in your JCL, you might choose to deal with each code separately or you might choose to deal with return codes 0 and 4 as a single result (the compare sets match) and 1 and 2 as another result (the compare sets do not match).
Note:
Return codes can be customized during installation. If you receive return codes that do not match those listed above, your site might have customized the return codes in place for this function. File Manager may also issue the 999 abend, if the return code in batch is equal to or greater than the ABENDCC value. Please contact your File Manager systems administrator for details.

1) 3.13 is Used for comparing datasets , one thing in this one is it'll compare only the first 80 bytes (If am not wrong).
2) 3.14 is Used for searching a specified string in a PDS , which shows the occurence of the string in a particular member.

3) Be more specific about the question.
