While getting the error message......Press PF1 twice....
It'll display the USERID who has opened that.

Tanden,

Thanks for your inputs.

The thing is that what you suggested here works fine for a Partitioned dataset (PDS) and doesn't work for PS (sequential Dataset).

I am looking for PS ....anyways thanks a lot for your response.


Can anybody throw some light on this.


Thanks,
Raju

Go to Command level in TSO and give the following command

TSODSN 'Dataset Name'

This should help you out

Tanden,

I rechecked it again ....It worked fine for me this time....I am wondering why it didn't work last time

The messages was saying ..'This option not valid for sequential dataset'

It does serve the purpose for me until I face any other exception

Thank you very much
Raju

I'm sure that both WhoHas and TsoDsn are Clist.
To view from ISPF 3.4 who use a dataset Tanden's method is correct pressing twice F1 when message 'Already in use' appair.
To check if file is busy or not thru a Clist or a Rexx you can download from the net WHOHAS utility or TSODSN.

For intrested user this is a PROC that can display you who is using a dataset through a console command:

Code:
PROC 1 DSN         
OPER               
D GRS,RES=(*,&DSN)
END               
EXIT

hi raju,

you can know who is using your dataset by giving 'WHOHAS' in the line command for that particular dataset and you can know who is using it


try it........

SYSDSN is NOT a standard TSO command:

TSO/E Command Reference.
