can anyone help me in using the LISTDSI function in other user IDs.....

if the filename is given in LISTDSI it automatically prefixes my ID so i could not be able to use it on other IDs....

Use list dsi like this:
rtn = listdsi('USERIDX.TEST.COBOL')
Note the use of apostrophe to contain the dataset name.

hi jon_s_rice,

the following is my code...

report = dlist.j /*dlist.j contains the dataset name*/
parse var report hlq1 '.' dsnrep
filename = dsnrep
address ispexec
x = LISTDSI(filename)

as the LISTDSI prefixes my ID i parse and take the filename alone...

but for other IDs how shall i implement the same.... your previous suggestion wouldn't help me.....
