hi,

how can i save the list of "dataset names" available to a dataset.

lets say i have 1000's of files with the name A.S*.*
using ispf option 3.4 i can list all of those but i would like to have that list written to a dataset. i tried option 'P' in 3.4 but i dont understand where exactly the list is printed. kindly suggest what needs to be done.

See number 2 here.

Then, see here to determine the name and/or status of the LIST dataset.

Enter on cmd line:

SAVE ax

where: a is any alpha char and x is any 0 to 7 A/N char string.

The list will be stored in a PS dataset named: yrTSOid.ax.datasets
To save PDS member lists do the same, changing "datasets" to "members".

Hi,

Can we do this in batch? We need to have a batch job which needs the member list for a given dataset and no manual intervention is required.

You can use the ISPF service LMMLIST/LMDLIST with OPTION(SAVE) in batch.

odd, if You have ispf then You can write a rexx using the ispf services...
LMMLIST and friends are not ready made things
are just services to be invoked by a ... script ( rexx,clist) or a program

By the way if you need a list starting with
Quote:
A.S*.*
as asked in very first post, might be you can use IDCAMS in batch. I assume "A" is HLQ here.

I am unable to view the dataset list after I try to save using on command line 'SAVE A4'. There are no datasets with my HLQ (Raman.A4.DATASETS). Help please!

The original instructions were:
Quote:
The list will be stored in a PS dataset named: yrTSOid.ax.datasets


But more correctly, it should say 'yourprefix':
Quote:
The list will be stored in a PS dataset named: yrPrefix.ax.datasets


Very frequently, the userid is used as the prefix, but you can choose a different prefix if you want. Use the PROFILE command. From the ISPF command line:
Code:
TSO PROFILE
to see your prefix.
