Hi,

I have seen DATACLAS=SORT in one of the production JCL. Can someone explain what it means???

The scenario was a SASE program is involved for creating a report and input file is very big in that step.

Hello,

DATACLAS=SORT is specific to your system.

I'd suggest you ask your storage management people when it is appropriate to use this dataclas.

You're welcome icon_smile.gif

I'd suggest you ask this of the storage management people. As a rule, i do not think that a second execution of a job using some dataclas would automatically cause an abend.

Dick, you are correct.

The DATACLAS may be used to assign certain attributes to a newly created dataset. That is all it is used for.
