Data set name
Can be a fully-qualified data set name or a pattern. The data set name is not a required parameter. When no data set name has been entered, Z Data Tools uses default generic data set name of ** which eventually resolves to 'userid.**' limiting the selected data sets to the files with names starting with the current userid.
Volume serial
A fully qualified or generic volume serial number.

In a generic volume use the percent % sign to represent a single character, and an asterisk * to represent any number of characters within one qualifier. Two asterisks ** represent any number of characters within any number of qualifiers.

Volume status
A fully-qualified volume status string (can be abbreviated). Can be one of the following values:
  • PRIVATE (also includes PRIV/RSDNT)
  • RESIDENT
  • PUBLIC
  • STORAGE
  • ALL (default)
Unit
A fully-qualified or generic device address (unit). In a generic name, use the percent sign (%) to represent a single character, and an asterisk (*) to represent any number characters within one qualifier.
Device type
A fully-qualified or generic device type (DEVTYPE). In a generic name, use the percent sign (%) to represent a single character, and an asterisk (*) to represent any number characters within one qualifier. For example, to list only volumes on 3390 devices, specify 3390.
SMS SG
A fully-qualified or generic SMS storage group name. In a generic name, use the percent sign (%) to represent a single character, and an asterisk (*) to represent any number characters within one qualifier.

In an SMS environment, the reserved name, NONSMS selects a non-SMS controlled volume.

Batch execution
Generates JCL to run the function in batch and then displays the JCL for editing. Use Set Batch Job Card Information (option 0.4) to tailor the default JOB card that Z Data Tools uses to generate the JCL. See Set batch job card information (option 0.4).
YY/MM/DD date format (default: YYYY.DDD)
Uses the YY/MM/DD date format instead of the default format of YYYY.DDD.
Limited information for VTOC list
If this option is selected, when you choose to display a VTOC list ("V" on the command line), Z Data Tools does not collect data set statistics for the volumes processed and "N/A" is shown for the data set statistics on the Disk Volume Details panel. Select this option for better performance.
Processing limit
If this option is selected, the number of data sets selected for VTOC processing is limited to the number specified. The default of 0 allows for no limit on the number of data sets selected.
