What is that you are trying to achieve through IEBGENER?

Thanks,

Hello SPaul and welcome to the forums,

If you explain what you want to do, someone will be able to help.

You have not posted any requirement, making it rather difficult to assist.

You have posted a question about something that may or may not be needed for a particular IEBGENER solution.

Hi Arun,

i need to analyze a code snippet and comment on the requirements further to enhance the system actually. so if I would have got the clear vision of the MAXLITS parameter [as used in the JCL code] I would have commented better.

please find below the code snippet::

//SX001 EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1 DD DSNAME=ACMSXXP.CUSTMAST,DISP=SHR
//SYSUT2 DD DSNAME= ACMSXXP.Header.TEST,DISP=(NEW,CATLG), …..

//SYSIN DD *
GENERATE MAXFLDS=5,MAXLITS=4
RECORD FIELD=(5,1,,1),FIELD=(20,21,,6),FIELD=(9,61,ZP,26), X
FIELD=(9,70,ZP,31),FIELD=(4,'TEST',,36)

There are a total of 4 characters (TEST) contained in the FIELD literals of the RECORD statement, therefore MAXLITS must be greater than or equal to 4 (according to the manual in the link I posted).
