Did you read the manual?

Code: Select all

//step.ddname dd
//          dd dsn=new.dsn
simply write a proc executing IEFBR14, add a dd with several datasets concatenated. Save it and execute it. Then edit the run deck as above.

So check that you are using the correct JCL and control cards for compiling/linking a C program in your shop. Refer to the JCL used for those other C programs that you mentioned, the people that did them or your sysprogs.

If you waqnt urgent hep then a forum is not the place to ask - ask your colleagues. People on forums answer for free, in their own time, if they feel so inclined. I believe most forum rules say that you should avoid posting urgent/asap or whatever. Some people refuse to answer , or deliberatly de;ay...

Go see your DBA. The message is clear - you are trying to use something, that although is included with the release, has not been activated.

Of course you can post some code - you can change anything that could identify your customer by using made up names and data. Without the code we have no real idea of what you are doing.

If you want to wait for Frank to reply then so be it - you will wait a very long time as he retired some time ago. Lesson to be learnt? Do not address posts to particular people.

No - it cannot be done by JCL although JCL may well be needed to execute the program that you require. Please not the topics covered in the JCL part of the forum: JCL, OS/390 JCL, MVS JCL, z/OS JCL, JES2 & JES3 and look at the other sections of the forum whre you may have made a more appropriate pos...

So what has this to do with JCL? Nothing in your post relates to Job Control Language. I suspect it is some programming language. Give people a clue - we know nothing about what you are doing except what you tell us.

Do not tack your topic onto the back of another topic. Start your own topic. Hopefrully someone will split this off the original topic.

To your request - you ask for the code - however that is not what a forum is for. So, what have you tried so far? Where is your sticking point?

Of course it is possible with JCL - as long as the JCL specifies a program that can do what you want. JCL simply lets the OS know which programs you wish to run and the resources required. Individual programs may, or may not, have control cards but they are NOT jcl. If you d not believe me then plea...

Your JCL will depend on what utilities you use.

If you are wanting to access all generations, not versions, without coding them individually then simply specify the GDG base name. Datasets will be allocated in newest to oldest sequence.
