To Generate a report on track usage

Postby eddy_mf » Thu May 20, 2010 12:25 pm

Hi all,

I have a set of files for which i have to do a wild card search for it and need to generate its track usage.
VSGAD2.DSNDBD*.*.*.I0001.A085 -
This can be achieved in ISPF 3.4 and P11 key

But i want this to done using a rexx utility
The problem is the file is neither a ps nor a vsam file.I this its an equvalent VSAM file a table
Hence its not working with LISTDSI,LISTCAT,LISTC etc...

Could any suggest any help for it as am new to rexx.

THanks
Eddy

Hello and welcome to the forum,

as am new to rexx
Unfortunately, we cannot provide training. . . It is simply too big a task.

Suggest you talk with your storage management people and see if they already have something similar to what you want that could be "cloned" for your requirement.

The problem is the file is neither a ps nor a vsam file.
Then what is it?

You might also look into using ISMF.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

The FILE when looked in ISPF it shows its DSORG as VS.
BUT the NAME exceeds 45 char's hence it Gives error in LISTDIS LISTC.
Any Advice how to crack this issue.

Have you considered using ISMF for your space usage report. Ask your storage management team about this.

DCOLLECT could definitely do this. It is described in the Access Method Services for Catalogs manual.
