Syntax for copying a pds into another pds

Postby senthil » Wed Jun 17, 2009 10:37 am

hi all,
can any one give me the syntax for copying a pds into another pds.
my source pds may contain more than 200 members,
my new pds should be an exact replica of the source pds.
Thanks

Hello,

In tso/ispf select option 3 (utilities). Look down the list for a selection that says move/copy (i believe this is selection 3 again).

The system will ask for the old (existing) dataset and then the new one. When prompted for dataset info, specify the output dataset should be build using the input info. Simply specify all members and all will be copied from the old to the new dataset.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Or you could use IEBCOPY in batch

Invoke IEBCOPY from REXX, or use LM services - see the ISPF manuals for details.
