Hello,

If you post what you actually want to do, someone may have a suggestion.

IDCAMS is usually used to define/modify GDGs.

what would be wrong in using something like
Code:
//AMS     EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSIN     DD *
  ALTER gdg.base LIMIT(newlimit)
/*

I think Once u created a GDG with limit.

Then its impossible to increase the limit.

second option is that to simply drop the GDG and create new GDG with maximum limit.

Completely wrong. . . .

The correct answer was alerady posted (IDCAMS/ALTER).

Unless/until you actually try what you post and verify if something will work or not, it is best not to post a contradiction to a solution. Why would you think it "impossible"?

I think FILE-AID also calls IDCAMS only in back-end..

You can both increase and decrease the limit

the only thing to pay attention is when the limit is being decreased
if the gdg parameters are empty scratch the generations execeding the limit will vanish..

I tested it, once upon a time, but I do not remember if they vanish
at alter time or at the allocation of the next generation

msgpk,

You can define a GDG using FILE-AID. But FILE-AID do not provide facility to modify it. But ya you can modify it using IDCAMS (As suggested by enrico).
