I'm not sure Gil's REXX is going to help you.
Can you confirm a few things for me?  

You don't have any tape management system, and you have @1000 tapes?

If there is no software to manage them, how do you do it? How do you know 
what's on each tape, when it can be overwritten etc etc?

You only write to tape using IEBGENER / IEBCOPY?
You don't use anything to migrate "old" data to tape?
You don't use a product like DFDSS or FDR to do full volume dumps? (You say you 
use IEBCOPY IEBGENER to do "volume copies" - I'm not sure I understand that)

Thanks in advance.
