First go to ISPF 3.4 to show the existing dataset
information by using the S or I line command.
After this, you can go to ISPF 3.2 to allocate a new PDS,
the previous dataset attribute will be pre-filled in the
allocation field.

how to create a new pds with the structure of an existing pds?..

Answer / joseph louis pargas

This is one way without the aid of any ISV tools.
Logon to TSO/ISPF. Select 3.2. Enter name of model DSN, hit
enter. The data set will appear along with attributes. Hit
enter so original panel is displayed. Type A (ALLOCATE) on
option line and type over the model DSN with new DSN. Hit
enter - you can make any last minutes changes (VOLSER is
pretty common). Hit enter again, and you should have a
message saying it's been allocated or not.

You can accomplish the same thing with JCL. but this is the
fastest. You don't need to go 3.4, unless you don't know
the model name.

how to create a new pds with the structure of an existing pds?..

Answer / smita

We can use IBM File Manager for this.
Go to ISPF screen.Type start U.34.
Select Utilities that is option 3.Enter.Then go for option
1 that is create.Enter.
Write the new DSN which is not yet created in the first DSN
option and the existing PDS in the second DSN option.Choose
option 1 in Processing option phase.Enter.
Select option 6 that is Non VSAM if we are going to create
a sequential one.Enter and check for the PDS in START 3.4.
I think this will help a lot in creating the alike PDS.
