Hi,

Full syntax for DYNALLOC is
Code:
            { d                                    }
 DYNALLOC = { (d,n Ý( RETRY ={ {nn,mm) }¨Ý,SC = s) }
            {                { OFF     }¨          }
            { OFF              ---                 }


DYNALLOC requests the dynamic allocation of SORTWK data sets on device type.

d: Specify the device type either as a decimal number (e.g., 3380) or by the system generic name (e.g., SYSDA). Any disk device accepted for a SORTWK DD statement can be specified.

DYNALLOC parameter may be used alone, without any subparameters. In this case, the DYNALLOC installation default settings are used.

So this
Code:
OPTION DYNALLOC=(SYSDA,nn)

tells to include 'nn' number of DASDs as SORT WORK files.

As suggested, check in manuals. SyncSort manulas are copyrighted materials so can't be linked via a public forum. You can request Alissa (SyncSort Support in this forum) for the documentation.
