How to copy Panvalet Members to a PDS - ISPF does not work..

Post by Ashish Mathew » Mon Jul 01, 2013 6:54 pm

Hi,

I need to copy Panvalet members to a PDS. I tried using the ISPF 3.3 option with the "From" as the Panvalet Datasource and the "To" as the PDS. This doesn't work. How can I do this?

The Panvalet documentation has information on the JCL to use for batch copies and the TSO panels for online (TSO) copy. Panvalet libraries (IIRC) are not "normal" PDS libraries and hence you cannot use IEBCOPY or ISPF functions directly -- only through the provided JCL / panels.

Thanks Robert.

Do you know a way of doing it in Panavelet? I know, you might not be a user of Panavelet, however in case you've used it ever...

Google let me find a reference to this JCL

Code: Select all

//STEP0100  EXEC PGM=PAN#1             
//PANDD1    DD DSN=PROD.PANAVALET.SOURCE,DISP=SHR
//PDSOUT    DD DSN=OUTPUT.PDS,DISP=SHR
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=* 
//SYSIN     DD *     
++OPTION  OUTPUT,PDSOUT,MEMBERNAME
++WRITE  WORK,MEMBERNAME
/* 
which purportedly works if there are no ++INCLUDE statements. Note that this is untested code from a source of unknown reliability.

Thanks Robert.

I was able to use a JCL with the help Panvelet admin in my office.
