Copying files or members containing JCL

If the file or PDS(E) members you are copying contain JCL, you can instruct Z Data Tools to maintain the integrity of the JCL syntax where the contents of the file or PDS(E) member have been changed during the copy process.

To maintain the integrity of JCL syntax as you copy, in the Copy From panel:

  1. Select the JCL Source format option.
  2. Select the Use proc option.
  3. Specify the remainder of your copy details as required and press Enter.
  4. Specify details on the Copy To panel as necessary and press Enter.

    Z Data Tools copies the selected data in the “From” data set to the “To” data set, maintaining the integrity of any JCL where the JCL is changed during the copy process.
