Hi ALL,

Is there any way to figure out the GDG base creation date?

Actually our team is in a process to delete the unused GDGs and for that we also need to know their orignation date.

Any kind of help will be really appreciated.

Regards,

Hi,

Did you try searching "Listcat" in this forum.

There are many topics on Listcat:
1)http://www.ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=40597&highlight=listcat

There are many more, rather there are many with same topic name as yours.

Try Search and you should be able to get more help on this.

Thanks,
-Kapil.

mohitsaini,

Use the following DFSORT jcl which will give you the desired results

Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01                     
//SYSTSPRT DD DSN=&&L,                           
//            DISP=(,PASS),                     
//            SPACE=(CYL,(1,1),RLSE),           
//            DCB=(LRECL=80,RECFM=FB,BLKSIZE=0) 
//SYSTSIN  DD *                                 
  LISTCAT ENT('B5355.G5299.NIKE.DATA') ALL             
//*                                             
//STEP0200 EXEC PGM=SORT                                             
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SORTIN   DD DSN=&&L,DISP=(OLD,PASS)                               
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//SYSIN    DD *                                                     
  INCLUDE COND=(01,8,CH,EQ,C'GDG BASE',OR,                           
                04,7,CH,EQ,C'NONVSAM',OR,                           
                37,8,CH,EQ,C'CREATION')                             
                                                                     
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,RECORDS=2,PUSH=(81:17,44),               
  BEGIN=(1,8,CH,EQ,C'GDG BASE',OR,4,7,CH,EQ,C'NONVSAM'))             
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                   
                                                                     
  OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(125:X'01',55,6,UFF,PD,LENGTH=3)),
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=(53,2,ZD,LT,20),OVERLAY=(125:X'00'))                 
  OUTFIL INCLUDE=(37,8,CH,EQ,C'CREATION'),                           
  BUILD=(81,44,C' IS CREATED ON : ',125,4,DT1,EDIT=(TTTT-TT-TT))     
//*


The output from the above job is

Code:

B5355.G5299.NIKE.DATA                              IS CREATED ON : 2008-02-25
B5355.G5299.NIKE.DATA.G0001V00                     IS CREATED ON : 2009-07-28
B5355.G5299.NIKE.DATA.G0002V00                     IS CREATED ON : 2009-07-29
B5355.G5299.NIKE.DATA.G0003V00                     IS CREATED ON : 2009-07-30

Thanks Skolusu,

This is excellent stuff.

Although, honestly, I am not well familiar with the syntax used in the Second step. Especially the IFTHEN part. But the whole JCL is working fine.

Will take some time for me to understand the second step completely.

Thanks again,
Mohit

Why do you need to know the creation date of a GDG base to know if it is being used or not ?

Good Question ... even I was also wondering when I got that kind of requirement ... but I guess it may help in deciding whether to go ahead with deleting the unused GDGs.

You are using SYNCSORT; Kolusu's solution is DFSORT.

Rather - have the product upgraded to the current release that supports this syntax. . .

Suggest you start a new topic and not resurrect an 8 year old thread.
