a) ISMF if you have access, i.e. one of the storage administrators (and this is posted in the VSAM / SMS section)
b) Asking one of the storage administrators if that isn't your job

I have ISMF, but i want the batch mode, that's why MXI by batch is a good choice i think.

I have used Naviquest in the past and unless it has improved a lot, then MXI is far simpler in this particular case. Of course Naviquest has the advantage of being available in most modern installations.

i just gave an alternative

The data you transfer from cbttape.org is always a zip file: xxx.zip.

After you have received the file from cbttape.org you must extract the files in the ZIP file either through Windoze or through a file extract program like winzip. There is usually just 1 file in the ZIP file. The file name is usually FILEnnn.XMI.

You must then send this file to your z/OS system as a "binary" file. It's usually best to send the file to a preallocated data set with DCB attributes RECFM=FB, LRECL=80, BLKSIZE= some multiple of 80.

You must extract the the PDS in this data set using the TSO RECEIVE command: RECEIVE INDATASET(xxx) where xxx is the file name you assigned to the data set when you sent it to the mainframe.

The RECEIVE command prompts you for the name of the PDS. The default name is usually pretty junky for your purposes, though it is perfectly OK. You do not have to pre allocate this data set.


See this page for more ideas.

The messages you show seem to indicate the transfer to the mainframe was not binary.
