    organisation of the model data set, if supplied, instead of the
    organisation selected when creating a data set.
    2. The File Manager Create and Copy utilities are ignoring the
    attributes of the model LDS data set when creating a LDS data
    set.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • 1. The File Manager Create and Copy utilities will use the
    organisation selected and, if supplied, take any applicable
    attributes from the model data set when populating the fields
    in the data set allocation panel.  At a minimum the record
    length and record format will be populated.
    2. The attributes of the model LDS data set will be used to
    populate the fields in the VSAM Allocate panel for the new LDS
    data set.
