?? The DD name is nothing. Just a relationship between JCL and program during the life of the run.

Please clarify

You know what you are asking and what you want to do, but as you can see from the replies, your request is not understood by all here.

COBOL has no "ddname override" function/capability.

Please clarify.

Hi Thomas,

Why don't you tell us about the problem you're experiencing that you think overriding the DD name of output dataset will solve.

There may be an easier solution.
