Hi Folks,

I want to search for a specific string in more than one PDS libraries. Is there any way in Mainframes for this purpose, like 3.14 option?

Yes Pandora. I have some 50 PDS libraries. I want to check if a string, for example "record" is present in any of the members in those PDS libraries.

You can use Option 3.15

Choose Execution Mode of batch:
Code:
                          Extended Search-For Utility
 Command ===>

 Search DS Name  . . MY.FIRST.PDS
 PDS Member List . . *         (blank/pattern - member list, * - search all)

 (Leave Search DSN "blank" for concatenated-uncataloged-password panel)

 Enter Search Strings and Optional operands (WORD/PREFIX/SUFFIX,C)
    Caps . .
    Caps . .
    Caps . .
    Asis . . STRINGTOFIND
    Asis . .

 Listing DSN . . . . ACP.SRCHFOR.LIST
 Process Options . . ANYC,IDPFX,LONGLN
 Statements Dsn  . .

 Enter "/" to select option      Execution Mode          Output Mode
 /  Bypass selection list        2  1. Foreground        1  1. View
                                    2. Batch                2. Browse


On next screen select to edit JCL

Code:
                    Search-For Utility - Submit Batch jobs
Command ===>

Press ENTER to continue submit

Enter "/" to select option                   Generate Output Type:
/  Edit JCL before user submit               1  1. SYSOUT Class
                                                2. Data Set Name
                                                3. //OUTDD DD
SYSOUT Class . . . . Z


Now add your additional datasets to NEWDD DD

Submit Job. Save your JCL to your own pds for future use.

Your results in SYSOUT will have the dataset concatenation position in parens.

Give it a try before asking more questions.

ibmmainframes.com/about10653.html - this link by Rohit was useful. 3.4 is easier than 3.15 icon_smile.gif
