hi Ramakrishna,

You can use 'LIKE' parameter as DSB paramenter to avoid the repetition of the same RECFM, LRECL and BLKSIZE.

For example:
//NEWDD DD DSNAME=XXXX.XXXX.XXXX,
LIKE=AAAA.AAAA,DISP=(NEW,KEEP)

Teh new DSN XXXX.XXXX.XXXX will have the same DCG parameters as AAAA.AAAA.

Hi Ramakrishna,

You can do like this also.

//Step01 your Extract step
//DD1 DD DSN=Extracted DATASET
//*
//STEP02 XXXXX
//DD2 DD DSN=YOUR NEW DATASET,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// SPACE=..........,
// DCB=Extracted DATASET
//*

In DCB parameter mention the DSN name which you used in Extract.

Hi ,

Another way is to use referback.

for ex: *.stepname

Thanks
