Allocate a new VB dataset and ISPF option 3.3 to copy into it. Be aware that if your VB CLIST record length extends beyond column 73, you might have execution issues with members having sequence numbers in 73-80.

Hello,

i need to change Clist file from FB to VB
Why do you believe you need to do this?

is there any specific names for Clist library or user defined
Suggest you speak with the system support people. They will know where thngs are and what they are named. . .
Hope this helps,

If you do ISPF command ISRDDN, you will see the libraries allocated to your TSO session. Scroll to find SYSPROC ddname.

Are you expecting that each user has their own CLIST library to customize? Be aware that ALL the libraries in the CLIST concatenation must be the same RECFM (FB or VB).

I agree with Dick's question: If you don't even know what the library is, why do you think it must be changed?
