Hi,
Its discussed a number of times in this forum.

But, for your ready reference , here is the JCL code.
Code:

//TTYAATAK JOB ,CLASS=I,MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID                       
//*********************************************************************
//* FILE NOT EXISTING :  RC = 12                                       
//* EMPTY FILE        :  RC = 04                                       
//* DATA FILE         :  RC = 00                                       
//*********************************************************************
//STEP010  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                             
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=C                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//FILEIN   DD DSN=TTYA.TEST.FILE1,DISP=SHR                             
//SYSIN    DD *                                                         
  PRINT INFILE(FILEIN) -                                               
      CHARACTER COUNT(1)                                               
/*                                                                     
//*                                                                     
**************************** Bottom of Data ****************************
