On the DD statement, you can code:

Code:

RETPD=10


This will keep your dataset for 10 days. Some companies have rules in place that datasets are never deleted. They just limit the amount of DASD space available to a particular section or area and make you clean up your DASD as you reach the limit.

[/code]
