Identifying a particular qualifier from a dataset

Post by Pacific » Mon Oct 20, 2008 6:17 pm


I have a job which creates a dataset having 3 qualifiers, for example, Aaa.***.Ccc. The value of the second qualifier depends on the input provided to the job.

Now, what i want is, as soon as this dataset is created, a job should run so that it could identify what the second qualifier is.

Can anyone please help me with this???

If anybody is having any confusion in my question then please let me know.
I will try to explain it in more proper way...

How do you "populate" the second node (qulaifier) ?
