- EXTRACT needs only READ authority to the Master file and does not update the LAST ACCESS DATE of the member in the CA Librarian Master file.
SEL needs UPDATE authority to the Master file and does update the LAST ACCESS DATE of the member in the CA Librarian Master file.
The Utility -EXTRACT control statement is a read-only facility that uses File Access Interface Routines (FAIR) to copy the data records of the member level
to the jobstream file. -EXTRACT copies the data records to the jobstream file without opening the Master file for update.
The -SEL module control statement selects a module from the Master file for processing.
The LAST ACCESS DATE is listed in the Management Index Listing :
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=AFOLIBR
//MASTER DD DSN=YOUR.LIBRARIAN.MASTFILE,DISP=SHR
//OSJOB DD DUMMY
//LIST DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
