a dataset name is seen as composite path
if Your dataset is HLQ1.HLQ2.HLQ3

then from any FTP client

cd /HLQ1
cd HLQ2
cd HLQ3

prompt ( to flp the prompt/noprompt flag )

mget *

it will get all the pds members
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
