You create GDG using IDCAMS' DEFINE GENERATIONDATAGROUP command. IDCAMS commands can be invoked from within REXX as a TSO command (ADDRESS TSO).

Hello,

Yes. Repeat the code/process as many times as is necessary.

And if they are based on existing GDG bases and need to be renamed, search the forum where I posted the REXX code to build new GDG bases from existing ones.
