I think krvarada is asking how to search a string in a GDG with many generations!!!
Well....you can supply GDG base to DDNAME in the JCL to process all the generations by your COBOL program. You would use a SEARCH /PERFORM verb in the procedure division to do a look out on the data what you are looking for.........
Pls correct me if I am wrong. _________________ Arr Bee

if You are looking for generations with particular string for Search purpose only,
you can use SRCHFOR command in the command line in ISPF to search for particular strings in the generations. _________________ Thanks & Regards,
