Question: 

In CA OPS/MVS, can I copy information from a OPSLOG DIV VSAM dataset to a sequential dataset?

Answer: 

You can perform this function via the PP command, you will need to perform the following steps:

  1. In OPSLOG turn on Message Number and Time (D MSGNO TIME)
  2. (Ex) Type L 12:00 takes you to 12:00 in your OPSLOG
  3. Type PP over the message number
  4. Find ending time that you desire and type PP
  5. Type LIST from OPSLOG... take note of the data set specified (list data set)
  6. Select option# 3 this will write the information to the list data set

Please note: If more lines are needed, you will need to increase the BROWSEPRINTLIM parameter via 4.1.1
