"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The instructions you posted describe how to create a table, not a dataset.

The database's datasets to contain the tables are obviously already defined, you're just going to build a new table inside.

The dataset names you are told to  provide are meant to store SPUFI's SQL statements and SQL output.

Actually, it looks like I'm trying to understand what VSAM dataset was used for the tablespace that was created.
Where do you see that VSAM is invloved?

This file suggested that to be possible.
