Hi,
My DFSORT JCL is giving SB37 abend. I tried increasing space but didn't work. The files involved in job have approx 700000 records.

What should I do to avoid getting this abend ?

you get SB37 for END OF VOLUME. Try increasing the volumes, not space.

You can get more space for your ds by increasing the # of units you allocate. You get up to 16 additional 2ndary extents for each additional unit.

When we used to get SB37, used to increase the space. You can also Use Management Class to supress the space.

Which data set did you get the B37 for? SORTOUT? SORTWKdd? What did the DD statement for that data set look like? Show the relevant JCL and JES messages.

Hi all,
Thanks a lot for your replies.
I used PGM=ICETOOL and got this error for TEMP1 file which looks like
Code:

//TEMP1   DD DSN=&&TEMP1,DISP=(MOD,KEEP,DELETE),RECFM=FB,DSORG=PS,
//      SPACE=(CYL,(90,20),RLSE)                                   


This is the part of error message that I got.
Code:

IEC030I B37-04,.................
IEA995I SYMPTOM DUMP OUTPUT                                                     
SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=B37  REASON CODE=00000004

Hi Parag,

Just Include VOL=(,,,#) in your jcl where job was abending.

#-->> Nomber of volumes, If you include 3 which will gives 48 extents, which is more then enough.

Also Increase SPACE to higher extent, Like

Code:
SPACE=(CYL,(999,999),RLSE),VOL=(,,,3)


Try out this & let us know.
