I would have to say that that's very likely. Something must be converting the variable &xyz into a valid value before the job is submitted.

I think its a symbolic constant. The value of which is stored in JOBLIB/STEPLIB library.

The value of a symbolic constant can be altered using the SET statement.

Please correct me if I am wrong as I am also new to Mainframes & JCL's.
