Reply with quote

I'm new to JCL programming. I have a clarification in JCL; again I don't know whether I could ask the question here,

Question 1:
In JCL, I have created a program to extract information from set of dataset. I tried with 1 dataset with some condition and it gives me the output size of 10 megabytes and tried with 10 datasets with the same condition in one JCL program again it gives me the output size of 10 megabytes. Is there a size limit for JCL output file. If yes, how could I increase to 20megabytes? and what is the maximum size limit for JCL output file.

Question 2:
If I want to filter the records using a JCL include condition, how should I specify the condition for my specific need. Please refer the below example records.

e.g:

20060320 B6J8 PK E2156B 04 0PK74 0009 2
20060320 B6J8 PK E2156B 04 0PK74 0012 1
20060320 B6J8 PK E2156B 29 *I+ 0014 1
20060320 B6J8 PK E2156B 34 QC/+ 0016 1

In the above records column position 30,2 I want to filter the 2bytes from the position 30-31 and it should be alphabets or numeric (both 2 bytes should be alphabets or numeric)


Thanks in advance. Bala

For answer to question 1 :-

As far as I know There no such specific size limitation to the file size in JCL.
I am not sure of your system( this may be the max allowed by your system)
As such I have in my system files with records 50 million(in TB's).

So please ask your administrator for these information.

Let me know if I am wrong.
Prem
