How to find out the last modified date of a PS.

In Data Set Information, it gives only Creation date and Referenced date.
Referenced date is the date when that is accessed.
I need to find out the date when it was modified.


Thanks in advance.

There is no easy way to find the date of last modification of a data set. The only reliable way is to access the SMF records and look in them for the modified date -- which may require reading millions of records and thus is rarely, if ever, worth the effort.
