Do you mean you need to append .XFR to the data set name? What you have written implies that you want a record wth the contents '.XFR' as the last record in the DATA SET.

If the GDG is created on the mainframe, why do you need to rename it with a UNIX process ?

Wouldn't a mainframe utility be the way to go ?

At present we are using Micfro Focus Cobol . So all the Mainframes files will be generated with .DAT extension.

So I need to convert the .DAT conversion to .XFR extension and to be placed in Unix Server Path.

Have you looked into this yourself ?
To rename a file using a UNIX command is easy enough, I googled it when I first needed to use it, so what is the problem.

Your explanation after some questions leads to a completely different scenario to that first given. PLEASE - do learn to give the full story from the outset as this can avoid problems later down the line.

From what I can now understand from your additional comments, the input would be TEST.TEST1.G00V100.DAT and this needs to end up as TEST.TEST1.G00V100.XFR, which is not your original description.

I agree with expat, since you are looking for a batch job solution, why limit yourself to BPXBATCH? Other utilities like IEBGENER or ADRDSSU can copy datasets. If you need to locate the latest dataset then a REXX based solution would be my choice.
