Hi,
here in first step of JCL suppose i am dynamically allocating the dataset where the dataset name is decided based on some validation(i.e. depending on tht we use second qualifier). and by using tht dataset name we allocate the dataset.

Now in next step i need to use same dataset name so how can we get what kind of dataset name (second qualifier ) created in earlier step.

Regards,
Umed

hy umed,

how you create that dataset?
with a utility or with a cobol program, or however?
does your jcl already know the name of the dataset?

can you provide the jcl?

Hi,
here we are creating the dataset thru cobol program which is used in first step.dynamically allocating/creating the dataset and in next step we are using that as the second dataset name is decided based on some conditions.

As the cobol program creates the dataset name dynamically in next step we are expecting to pass the dataset name which has been given in first step for use in next step.so i need to pass the dataset name which is dymnamically allocated thru cobol program in first step to next one.

Regards,
Amol

hy umed,

if you have the appropriate access routines, with
which you can dynamically access any datasets,
the dataset name passed, could be as input to
the next program/step. therefore write a file
to pass the name from step1 to step2.
