I'd like to determine which dataset in a group of concatenated datasets is currently being processed. I have multiple datasets going through an edit process (COBOL) on a mainframe and when I find an error I'd like to list the DSN the record is in.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The whole point of concatenating datasets is that logically they make up one file.

I am sure that by digging deep enough, some DCB or other control info can give you an answer. I suspect, however, that this forum is not the best for that sort of in-depth question.

    In COBOL pgm keep the record counter and increment by '1' when the record has been processed successfully.
