This is giving space abend. So how to increase the space still. Because if we are writing to DASD , we can increase the drives from UNTI=PRODDA to UNIT=(PRODDA,10) to use 10 drives. But i have a doubt on how to increase the tape number.
Please help me in this.

Using "10" and having the job run successful means that your data fit on 10 or less volumes. To know the number of volumes actually used, you can look at your tape management information or the system catalog. If you have the output from the job that created the output, it will show how many volumes were used.
If you actually used 8 or 9 volumes, i'd suggest you change your jcl to 15 and periodically check how many actual volumes were used.
You might also talk with your tape management and see if your system uses (and your dataset qualifies to use) a higher volume type of cart.
