No. Almost every system enforces a time out on TSO sessions. When the time out is reached, your TSO session is logged off. When your TSO session logs off, the address space is gone -- nothing is retained unless it has been written to data sets (such as your ISPF profile information). So retaining the state of your TSO sessions across log off / log on is not possible.

Thanks Robert.

Then there may be possibility by coding in REXX or CLIST . Opening all all those things which are stored in data set. IS it
