the only help we can give You is a suggestion...

read and try to understand the job messages - that You did not even care to post
read the PKZIP docs,
investigate what might be wrong with the output file...
if USS - permissions, paths, ....
if mvs - space, DCB, ...

nothing more we can do, given the generic request

Hi Ranjith,

I can help you on that, I can give you code that I am using, try this and let me know if you get any problem. I am using that so frequently.

Code:
//HKZIPFLE EXEC PGM=PKZIP,REGION=2048K,                             
//          PARM='-ARCHIVE(BXRT74.PAYX.ABCDEDD12345.D0825A.ZIP)'         
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SYSIN   DD  SUBSYS=(CCSS,                                         
//    ' -NIA(BXRT74.PAYX.ABCDED.D12345.S1.D0825A,ABC&ABC..TXT) ',
//    ' -ARCHUNIT(DASD)  ',                                         
//    ' -ARCHSPACE(TRK)  ',                                         
//    ' -ARCHPRIMARY(5)  ',                                         
//    ' -ARCHSECONDARY(5)  ',                                       
//    ' -METHOD(SUPERFAST)  ',                                     
//    ' -TEXT  ',                                                   
//    ' BXRT74.PAYX.ABCDED.D12345.S1.D0825A')                     
//*                                                                 

Input dataset: BXRT74.PAYX.ABCDED.D12345.S1.D0825A
Output zipped file:BXRT74.PAYX.ABCDEDD12345.D0825A.ZIP

Remember you need to alter retention period of Zipped file, It has Permanent.


Thanks,
Trilok Kumar

friendly advice...
before posting code make sure that it is not site specific

Your sample shows that You are using the control card subsystem,
not everybody has it available and somebody might even find difficult
to understand it

I have seen too many cases of people running the suggested jcl ASIS
and after that a flood of posts of the type
... it does not work
... post the jcl
... nahhh I meant the sysout
... read the manual about abend 806
... it says program not found
... do You have product ACME installed
... no I haven' t
... tht' s what we are using

and so on and so on
