    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. With only two votes spanning the nine year period since creation, unfortunately on this occasion we cannot justify the investment in this feature and we do not intend to take this idea further forward.

    Thanks for raising this good requirement. We'd very much like to improve our support for z/OS data sets in WMB, particularly to bring the FTE nodes up to the level that is available in the other nodes. We'll consider it as a candidate item for the next tranche of file enhancements. Kind regards!
