You will, provided your queries are correctly posed.

JCL program?

Basic ISPF panels will do this. Just do some 'R' work.

Try 'RR' command.

Replies with term clarification

1) there is no thing as a JCL program...
a JOB is identiified in its basics by
... job card
... exec statement
... dd statement

there can be 0 to many dd' s for each exec

there can be many groups of execs/dd's for each JOB

a sequential dataset or a member of a PDS can contain as many jobs as You want..
(as many as Your brain can manage while editind the member )


2) why use cut and paste ??
use ISPF 3.3 ( copy/move)

use the CREATE command from the member You are editing to
as the name says create a new member in the current or a different PDS

use the REPLACE command from the member You are editing to
as the name says to replace an existing new member in the current or a different PDS
( if the destination object does not exists iy will be created )

3) the question is not clear

You can use the RR

command of the ISPF editor with a number modifier...

RR on the first line of the group and a RR on the last line
will replicate the group,
a number modifier on any of the RR like RR4 will..
why don' t You try it

Lots of finger checks this morning

my previous number 3 was meant as number 4..

as far as the original number 3

/interviewer stupidity on
it' s a moot point
I am SURE that no system programmer ever cared about such number

there will certainly be :
1 local ( for LPA )
1 common ( for CSA )

for performance there should be one page dataset for each disk volume

if anybody got a message saying that
he tried to exceed the MVS supported number of page datasets

it is likely that the IT shop has bigger problems !!
/interviewer stupidity OFF

anyway the magic number is guess what? ( I had to look for it ) 256
see the PAGTOTL parameter of IEAYSxx
