Hi,

Which would be better? IEBGENER or IEFBR14 to create an empty GDG Version.

Thanks,
Mahe

Both work fine, but if you use IEFBR14 remember to include MODLDSCB or DSORG=PS. Otherwise the empty generation will not be able to be opened to be read.

I'd use DFSORT. Just my personal preference to give me precise control over the RECFM and LRECL.
