I want to stack multiple DASD volumes on to tape. I created a job with retain and referbacks like this.

//STEP010.TAPEA DD LABEL=(2,SL),
// VOL=(,RETAIN,,REF=*.PROC010.STEP010.TAPEA)


//PROC030 EXEC MASHBKS1,VOL=STRB92
//STEP010.TAPEA DD LABEL=(3,SL),
// VOL=(,RETAIN,,REF=*.PROC010.STEP010.TAPEA)

etc

The trouble is when the previous step goes into a second volume it fails. How do I avoid this ?

Hi T.O.

Try coding the # of vols in the VOL param. Ive seen 999 used when the # required is unknown.
