Need help on ISPF 3.14 Search-For Utility

Postby mohbaig » Fri Nov 15, 2013 11:13 pm

Selected the options,

Search String . . YPXUTS1
Data Set Name . . . 'MATE04.JOBLIB'
Listing Data Set . . . 'MATE04.SRCHFOR.LIST'

On hitting enter , i can see the list of members in the dsn i provided and the instruction.
"Enter END command to process selections or CANCEL to leave the member list."

I entered END and hit enter, 'MATE04.SRCHFOR.LIST' is empty.

Please advice.

You can use 'MATE04.JOBLIB(*)' to search all members, or place an s by the members you want tom search in the member list. Justn hitting END will cause the search to run against no members, hence the output in SRCHFOR.LIST will be nothing since you found no matches.

Hello,

If the files to be searched are very large, suggest you run this in batch.

One reason is to take the load off of TSO.
If your organization is concerned about online cpu time this could be important.

Another is that you can write the output to a file for later use.

fwiw.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
