  • Mainframe GDG files

    Is access to the above not possible ? Here are the log results when trying to access a specific file that does exist on the mainframe

    I also tried specifying the file as 'BGST.BGST.D123601(0)' (which is the std m/f method of specifying the last/latest generation of a GDG), but BC didn't like this (reasonable, I suppose).

    Considernig how easilt it managed to access a PDS member on the m/f, I'm somewhat perplexed.

    I don't know how to specify it directly.

    Does it work to open the url: ftp://xxxxxx1@ftp_site/ and then browse to the file that you want?

      Thanks. I was about to reply that it didn't work, but then, suddenly, automagically it did. I specified

      and was shown a list of members.
      Thanks for the tip
