For your future reference you do not refer to files on the mainframe - they are data sets (unless you are refering to Unix System Services).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

if You want to keep people interested in helping You,
it would be wiser, when posting, to use more intelligent and explicative topic titles.

at first sight anybody could interpret Your topic title as ...
help a dummy user/poster/.... ;)
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
