Now, My problem is .. I am getting all the GDG versions into output file.
But I need only gdg generation which has that particular string.

I tried many ways but nothing is working. Please help me out

Have you tried ISPF option 3.14 which may well give you everything that you need

Hi Dick,

Thanks for your quick response

I tried 3.14 and 3.15 too.
When I tried to give my GDG name.. It is saying "dataset not catalagued"
My gdg is catalogued and it has generations too

Thanks,
Mounika

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Where did you enter the gdg name? Possibly you did not enclose the dsn in quotes?

If there were no generations, there would be no data . . .

Please do not post screenshots - a simple cut and paste and use the code tags is sufficient and uses fewer resources.
When it says 'Data Set Name' it means a data set name not a GDG base. It goes off and looks for that specific name and, of course, it does not find it.
    Go into 3.4
    enter test.my.gdg.* and bring up the list
    enter 'srchfor string to find' on the command line
    when the search is finished press (P)F1 and note the dataset where the results are stored.

That was a very quick experiment on my part - why couldn't you do it too?

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your response.

I want generations in a dataset. Because I want to search a string in different GDG'S and all the versions can be stored in a single dataset. SoI am trying for jcl where I can include all my GDG bases.

Dick,

I acheived my desired output by using fileaid only. Instead of using $$DD01 LIST OUT = 0
IF (1,EQ,31832329) where 3178... stands for search string

I used this

$$DD01 LIST IF(1,EQ,31832329).


Thank you so much for the support. I gained a lot thru this forum
