I am confused.. Situation i like that
1. I have a JCL
2. JCL executes a program pgm-a
3. pgm-a call another program pgm-b

I need to add file pgm-b. I did like this. I added all File Control and descrrption in pgm-b and declared that file in JCL. I am little bit confused since JCL is executing pgm-a.

Am i right? If not, what should be correct approach.

There will be one EXECution per step. Regardless of which module uses a dataset, the DD statement for that dataset will follow the EXEC.

You have done this correctly.
