LISTCAT with multiple levels

Postby rbs1121 » Thu Oct 24, 2013 2:13 am

Has anyone tried to list catalog entries using multiple levels? For example, I would like to list datasets with the qualifiers like this: AAA.*.*.BBB. I can do it in ISPF 3.4, but I can't get IDCAMS to work with the LISTCAT parameter, using either the ENTRIES or LEVEL parm. Has anyone done this before? Thanks.

AAA.*.*.BBB is not valid, but LEVEL(AAA.*.BBB) finds names with any number of levels between AAA and BBB.

I tried that, but it didn't work. This is what I coded: LISTCAT LEVEL (AAA.*.BBB). I have 2 datasets, named AAA.TEST.BBB and AAA.TEST.CCC.BBB. It found only AAA.TEST.BBB. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

You are only asking for one level - even in 3.4 you have to specify each level unless the * comes at the end. suggest you look up the format in the manual.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
