Append Data in all PDS member

Postby hparthas1 » Mon Dec 27, 2010 12:46 pm


I have a requirement to append same text in all all members of a PDS dataset.

Is this possible to append data either as header or trailer in all members.

Can someone tell me how to proceed further in this.

Any help would be great.

Best Regards,

Harikrishnan, you started an identical topic on another forum, and I had asked you to describe with some more detail how you were intending to do this, and I'm still waiting for the details. Many analysts would write a program to loop through the members and invoke an ISPF Edit Macro to change each member. Others might write a program to read each member, add the data, and then write out the changed member content. Others might convert the PDS to a sequential dataset, apply the changes to it, then create a new PDS with the updated content.
