    Is it possible to change the name of the Collection Profile data set created ?
    by default , this name is  : high-level.PDTCPR.profile-id.profile-ssid   , the second qualifier hard coded is a problem for the naming convention of some shops .

    I think it is unlikely you can change the PDTCPR part of the profile name. There are processes that expect it to have PDTCPR.

    What if you use a double level HLQ ?


    TEST.PRF.PDTCPR.profile-id.profile-ssid    so making PDTCPR a third level qualifier?

    What specifically about PDTCPR as a dataset name qualifier is causing a problem?

    The high-level qualified can be a name with more than one qualifier, the only restriction is 17 characters in length.

    The following is from Help panel:

    Field: High Level

    Description: Enter the profile dataset high level
    qualifier. This field can be up to 17 characters in length.

    I created a Collection Profile with "Profile ID ==> RAUJO02B" and "High Level ==> PDTDBA.R190.TEST"

    The VSAM data set name created was:
