Steve,
I agree that REXX is not a perfect tool as the length of my file is very huge. I initially thought of doing this by COBOL. so do you think that COBOL will be good for this.

I know that i have to use string concepts if i am going to prepare a Cobol program by using inspect and tallying keywords...Please share your thoughts on this as i need the guidance of you all to proceed and complete this very first assignment.

Thanks a lot in advance.

NicC mentioned this earlier:
You could cut this down by passing your input through sort first to select only job cards and lines with DSN= or DSNAME= on them.

Perhaps filter your data with SORT, then use rexx on that.
