TMSOSCAT reporting NO TMC ENTRY message on valid entries

When I run TMSOSCAT I am receiving lots of NO TMC ENTRY messages on valid entries.

The error report is reporting on all the entries from the second-list as being in error.


Verify when coding the IDCAMS control statements that you did not list a user-catalog twice because TMSOSCAT. TMSOSCAT doesn't validate that you coded the user catalog twice, so it's reported as an error.

All the valid entries from the duplicate LISTCAT will be reported as “NO TMC ENTRY” even though a TMC entry does exist.

Be sure to NOT have duplicate user-catalogs when doing the LISTCAT operation.
