Did you look at the JCL Reference manual for info on VOL parameter?

I hope your example should have only 3 commas! This positional parameter is for the volume count. When creating a non-SMS controlled file, the system only builds a control block for 5 volume serial numbers. To allow for more than 5 you must include the vol-count or get an x37 abend.

Hello tamma and welcome to the forums,

One of the features of the forum is the "IBM Manuals" link at the top of each page.

Included in the IBM Manuals are the JCL manuals for the current versions of the operatng system.

Hi,
the fourth comma will be a JCL error, the other 3 will be in the IBM manuals as suggested.
