Hi ashu,

If you mean by your ques:

"Which of the select/assign stmt names is used in the pgm logic?" The ans is: the select name; e.g. SELECT FILE-A-OP ASSIGN TO FILEAOP. FILE-A-OP is used in the pgm; FILEAOP is used as the ddname in the JCL.

Hi,

Some people percept SELECT/ASSIGN clause as:

Code:
SELECT logical-file-name ASSIGN TO DD-name.


Former is termed as logical-file-name because it does not have any physical existence.

Hope this helps.
