YOUR JCL
//step1 exec pgm=eztpa00
//dd1 dd etc....
//dd1 dd etc....
//sysin dd *
here i have ezt program
/*
//step2 exec pgm=eztpa00
//dd1 dd etc....
//dd1 dd etc....
//step1.sysin dd *

Solution:-
//step1.sysin dd * ==> This is wrong in step2. Instead you have to give
//DD2 DD DSN= *.step1.dd1

===============================================
Here is my example:

Example1: == Same Step

//JOBA JOB ...
//STEPA EXEC ...
//INPUTA DD DSN=REPORT
//OUTPUTA DD DSN=*.INPUTA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Example2: == Different Steps

//JOBA JOB ...
//STEPA EXEC ...
//INPUTA DD DSN=INFILE
//OUTPUTA DD DSN=REPORTA

//STEPB EXEC ...
//INPUTB DD DSN=*.STEPA.INPUTA
//OUTPUTB DD DSN=REPORTB

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Example3: == Refer PROC DSN in JCL

Proc name - PROCA

//PSTEP1 EXEC ...
.
.
//PSTE2 EXEC ...
//INPUT2 DD DSN=INFILE2
//PSTEP2 EXEC ...
//OUTOPUT2 DD DSN=OUTFILE2


JCL

//JOB5 JOB ...
//PROCSTEP EXEC PROC=PROCA
.
.
//STEP1 EXEC .....
//DD1 DD DSN=*.PROCSTEP.PSTEP2.INPUT2
//DD2 DD DSN=OUTPUT

Note that the entire procedure PROCA is processed when the calling EXEC statement STEP1 is processed in JCL; therefore, all DD statements in the procedure are earlier than all DD statements in the calling step.

Unless you post the actual output and we can see the actual error, you may not get the help you have requested.

As requested by muthuvel - but you have not done this.

Input provide by Getmohankumar81 is sufficient to find the Solution rather then the error code.

I think it would be suitable solution to solve this problem..before read the post why asked for Error and complete code.

Vijay may be expert in JCl........

Bye........
