How many do you need? What does the SPLIT job look like exactly? What is the RECFM, LRECL and BLKSIZE of the output files?

Note that if you use SORTOFx (FILES=x) you can only have as many as 1 character will allow (0-9, A-Z, etc). Using SORTOFxx (FILES=xx) instead of SORTOFx would certainly give you more. Using FNAMES would give you lots more.

I think the answer will be the maximum number of DD statements that the system will allow to be coded for the jobstep. Obviously, it has to be 3273 or less.
