Tape data set filtering

Select Tape Data Set Filtering to advance to the data entry panel that enables you to:
  • Specify any or all of the parameters described in the following table by using the tape filtering dialogs

    Use the OP fields to set comparison operators for the values that you enter. Most non-numeric or single entry fields allow masking and stacking (multiple entries) of values separated by a comma. Some fields have two sets of OP and value entry fields. These fields allow for exclusions and ranges.

  • Use the SVOSPARM member containing FLST parameters described in the FLST parameters in SVOSPARM member SMFT31xx that can be used to filter data for the Tape management Data Set Details by DSN view (TDSDD) in conjunction with parameters in the tape data set filtering dialog or on its own.

Note

The first DSN entry field in the dialog has a continuation line. You must completely fill the first line before using the next line because the two lines are treated as one contiguous string.
