Dear Friend,

IEFBR14 is a two-line program that clears register 15, thus passing a return code of 0, and then branches to the address in register 14, which returns control to the system.

If a step requests IEFBR14 instead of the program that the JCL actually supports, the system does the following:

Checks all the job control statements in the step for syntax.
Allocates direct access space for data sets.
Performs data set dispositions.

Note: please use meaningful title for your posts!

Hey dude,
IEFBR14 is a utility program in JCL.It is used to create a PS and it is also used to create a PDS.Enough or u need the coding also,if yes then here it is:
//Jobname JOB Notify=&Sysuid
//Exec1 EXEC PGM=IEBR14
//DDname DD DSN=ID.Hell.PS,Disp=(New,Catlg),
Unit=SYSDA,DCB=(DSORG=PO,LRECL=80,RECFM=FB,
Blksize=800),Space=(Trk,(1,2),RLSE)
//
So on execution u will be creating a PS File on DsList.Same coding for PDS Too only diff is in DSORG Specify PO instead.This is all abt IEBR14,if any mistake do correct me.

What McMillan is saying is right. But the guy who asked the question is testing the EXPERTS. I think he already knows the functionality and he wants to explain. Dont do like that just Post what you know directly in to appropriate forum.

I also suggest Site administrator to create a seperate section where just we can post some thing new what we know without asking questions.

Bye,
Reddy.

You can use "Mainframe-Advanced" Forum to post your articles and new topics related to mainframe. Or use "Other Technical Forum" to post your non-technical articles.
