Yes. Seems like a rather trivial task. What exactly do you need help with?

Well, the IEBCOPY Utility is normally used to copy members from one PDS to another. There's nothing in CLIST or REXX that does this.

I could have used it but the dataset name's are not known. I know the members name only. So I am stuck.

In eight days you have come here with four seperate and diverse requirements, any one of which you don't have the slightest idea about.

If you are an absolute beginner, is someone "winding you up" by giving you these tasks and getting you to ask here?

If you are not an absolute beginner, how come you have no idea even about how to describe these things?

Something doesn't add up.
