Reply with quote

Hi,
In one of my JCL i used the utility IKJEFT1B.
I need the output in a Tape file in Variable Block Format.
I have explictly given as RECFM=VB.
But the output file created is Fixed Block.

Below is the code:
//SYSREC00 DD DSN=T.AC.DEV1.UNLOAD2,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// UNIT=TAPE36E,
// VOL=(,RETAIN),
// LABEL=(1,SL),
// DCB=(DLJ.MODLDSCB,RECFM=VB,LRECL=710)

Whether IKJEFT1B utility allows only creation of FB.
Whether any other option is available.

Thank you for help in advance.

IKJEFT1B is simply TSO. No tricks here.

Hello,

Try removing the "DLJ.MODLDSCB" parameter. That dscb may be forcing the FB.

Hi Dick,

The DCB info in his DD stmt o'rides the model dscb DCB, but the app he's invoking may have the FB info hard coded and is o'riding the DD DCB via the DCB merge logic.

Hi Jack,

Yes, quite possibly.

One dd statement in a batch tso run is not a lot of info to work with icon_confused.gif

It would be most helpful if we could see the complete JCL and control statements that cause the undesired result. . .
