Hi,

I have a tape dataset which we cant access.........

if we want to access means we need to copy to another flat file.....

But, I want to know the number of records present in a tape dataset so that I can verify that number of records copied to flat file or not.....

thx in advance.......

Generally returning ZERO as RC from IDCAMS step (for copying TAPE to DISK) denotes your data have been copied.

Why not to right a prog along with Display Count for I/p & O/p, in case suspecious to the utility results.

Regards,

Priyesh.

Hi

I believe you can go into TMS (Tape Management System) and find the no of recs.

Else

During copying into a flat file, you can c the no of input recs mentioned in the sysout.
