Question: 

Is there any way to display the creation date for a dataset with CA ROSCOE using ATTACH DSN?

Answer: 

Here are the steps to display the creation date with CA ROSCOE for a dataset using ATTACH DSN.

    1. On the Roscoe command line, enter
      DSN
      and press enter. Roscoe will display the following panel: Make sure DISPLAY FORMAT === > LONG.
      > APPLID(ROSCOE)   USER(XXX,XXXXXXX)> DSN()               SCRL CSR  COLS 00001 00079><...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+....                                DATA SET FACILITY     FUNCTION       ===>     DATA SET       ===>    VOLUMES        ===>    UNIT NAMES     ===>    VOLUME TYPES   ===>    ARCHIVE LEVEL  ===>                  PASSWORD       ===>    PGMR NAME      ===>                  MCD CODE       ===>    MODULE TYPE    ===>                  LANGUAGE       ===>    DISPLAY FORMAT ===> LONG   (Q,S,L,H) CONFIRM DELETE ===> DSN: YES  MEM: NO
      Press Enter.

    2. CA Roscoe can display output in several different formats. To select the format where you can see the creation date, enter
      SEL ALT 3
      on the Roscoe command line.

      NOTE: In the display, the creation date column heading is abbreviated as CREDT.

    3. Enter the command to display your dataset(s). For example,
          A D ROSCOE.PUBLIC.+ ORDERED BY CREDT DESCENDING
      This command displays the list of datasets specified in descending creation date order. Archived datasets will show a blank in the CREDT field, for example:
      > APPLID(ROSCOE)   USER(XXX,XXXXXXX)> DSN()               SCRL CSR  COLS 00001 00079                   LINE 000001><...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+.... =================================== T O P ===================================== SEARCH ARGUMENT                             MATCHES  CATALOG NAME        TYPE ROSCOE.PUBLIC.+                                  62 ICF.USERID.USERCAT3   VSAM    DATA SET NAME                                  CREDT      REFDT      EXPDT    ROSCOE.PUBLIC.I1234567.SVCDUMP                05/10/10  05/13/10    ROSCOE.PUBLIC.M0511.SMPCSI.CSI.DATA...
