Hi,
Can anyone tell me if the DCB and Space parameter alone can be overridden in a Jcl? If so how to do it.

Yes to DCB - but curious to know why you would want to.

Yes, sort of, to SPACE.

How to do it ............ what have you tried for yourself and what errors did you experience.

Please post both your code and the output.

Hi,

Kindly see the below link.
http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=31011&highlight=override

I took this link by searching the forum for the keyword "OVERRIDE".

Regards
R KARTHIK

Code:

//DD2 DD DSNAME=file1,DISP=OLD,DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,
// BLKSIZE=80)
//DD3 DD DSNAME=File2,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),UNIT=SYSDA,
// ,VOLUME=SER=600,DCB=*.DD2


Similar with space parameter too

Hello Prasanthhere,

// ,VOLUME=SER=600,DCB=*.DD2


The above code is a jcl REFERBACK and not an OVERRIDE which I believe the poster has asked for.

Thanks,
Arun
