Getting the DSN from DDNAME in REXX (JCL)

Postby papadilbert » Thu Mar 24, 2016 2:41 am

I have jcl that executes a REXX script that reads an input file using EXECIO.

I need to determine in the REXX script the dataset name that the JCL associated with the DD Name.

Ideas?

Use the LISTDSI function with the FILE keyword to get the data set name in variable SYSDSNAME.

Yep. That's what I just discovered. Works great. Thanks!

I had to switch from IRXJCL to IKJEFT01 in order to execute the LISTDSI function.
