Don't know of a REXX function that will give you that information, nor could I find an ISPF Service that does, and LISTCAT doesn'r either.

I think you have to look at your system's SMF data to find this information.

For datasets, you can use LISTDSI function, then the variable SYSREFDATE will contain the "last referenced date".

For members with ISPF statistics, you can use the LMMSTATS service, and get the "last modified date" in MODDATE.

LMMSTATS is used to set the last modified date. But anyway, thanks for your info. Because of that, I came across LMMLIST service and used that to get the last modified date

I'm confused icon_confused.gif

The ISPF LMMLIST facility is only available for a PDS dataset. As a matter of fact, if you attempt to use it for a QSAM dataset, you get the following message:

Data set not partitioned
LMMLIST requires the data set to be a partitioned data set.

How is it going to be of any use to your original post:

I was trying to get the last updated date of the members of a PDS only.. But is there any way to get the last updated date of a sequential dataset..

Sorry for the misleading question.
