Please fill in the information below and a member of the DTS Software technical staff will be happy to examine your ACS routines or DTS product Policy Rules and make recommendations for improvement. We’ll look for "dead code," duplicate or confusing logic, possible performance issues and provide ease of understanding of the analysis. We’ll also send you back suggestions on how to make the code more understandable, readable, and efficient.

How to Find Your ACS Routine Source

1. ISMF Storage Administrator

To display active ACS routines, you must be a an ISMF Storage Administrator (SA). If you are an ISMF End User (EU) and are authorized to do so, you can make yourself a Storage Administrator by going to ISMF Option 0 (Storage Administration), then selection Option 0 again (User Mode Selection) and then setting User Mode to 2 (Storage Administrator). You must then exit ISMF and re-enter.

2. Display Current ACS Routine Source Datasets

Go to ISMF option 7 (Automatic Class Selection). Make sure the CDS Name is ACTIVE and then select option 5 (Display). This will show the location of the current source from which each active ACS routine was translated, as well as the date, time, and userid of the translation.

Sending ACS Source to DTS Software

Via Email
You can copy the ACS source datasets to a set of sequential files and attach them to an email to support@dtssoftware with the subject ‘Complimentary ACS Analysis’. Please name the files something like ‘STORCLAS ACS Routine for Company XYZ.txt’.


Alternatively, you can send the files to our FTP server at The ftp userid is ‘ftpuser’ and the password is ‘user4ftp’. Please name the file something like ‘STORCLAS ACS routine for XYZ Company.txt’. For more information on sending the files to DTS via FTP, including secure file transfer, see the document ‘Sending Dumps and Data to DTS Software’ or
