hi,
Sure...
U may use any utility for creating PS/PDS.ie., idcams , iehprogm etc., All utilities will create PS/PDS but each one give different Maxcc.

IEFBR14 is not considered by IBM as an utility. It is a dummy program.
It can be used for a variety of things:
1. Creating Datasets
2. Deleting Datasets by Giving DISP=(MOD,DELETE,DELETE). The advantage it provides is even if the dataset does not exist, it will create and delete the dataset and give a low return code as 4.
3. It is used for setting a return code to 0. Just simply Execute the IEFBR14.

I think that you can store data in a new member of partitioned dataset but you cannot create it empty with IEFBR14.

IEFBR14, is useful to create a partitioned dataset but not its member!
In particular, IEFBR14 cannot open a dataset, IEFBR14, when allocate a dataset does not provide any I/O.

To create a Partitioned Data Set:
Code:

                 
//STEP01    EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                 
//DD1       DD DSN=IBMMF01.DEMOPDS,DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),           
//             DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=80,DSORG=PO), 
//             SPACE=(TRK,(1,1,1),RLSE),                       
//             UNIT=SYSDA


If you want to create a empty member you must use IEBGENER, IDCAMS and so on but you must do a I/O coping in it at least a DD * as you can see below:
Code:
//REPRO    EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                               
//SYSOUT   DD  SYSOUT=B                                   
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=B                                   
//INP1     DD *                                           
//OUT1     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=mylib(member)
//SYSIN    DD  *                                         
  REPRO INFILE (INP1) OUTFILE (OUT1)

I'm thinking that IEBUPDTE might also be a better utility to use.

Thank you.
Using IDCAMS Repro command, I have created PDS member.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
So the conclusion is IEFBR14 can also be used to create or delete PDS. But member in the PDS can not be created using this utility.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
To create a PDS we have to specify DSORG=PO in the DCB parameter.
For example,

Code:
//IEFBR14  EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//DDName DD  DISP=(NEW,CATLG),DSN=PDSName,
//             STORCLAS=MFI,
//             SPACE=(TRK,(45,15,50)),
//             DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=800,DSORG=PO)
//*


--------------------------------------------------
Can you please explain how we can do this using IEBUPDTE ?



Thanks,
Vidya Bhat

//             SPACE=(TRK,(50,,10)),

Hi,
I executed the following JOB:

//*---------------------------------------------------
//PS010 EXEC PGM=IEBUPDTE,PARM=NEW
//*---------------------------------------------------
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=B052VAP.CREDIT.VIDYAX,DISP=(,CATLG),
// UNIT=WORK,SPACE=(CYL,(77,20),RLSE)
//SYSIN DD DATA
ADD NAME=MEMB1
/*
//*




But I got error on ADD NAME=MEMB1

Following is the error message:
-----------------------------------
IEB806I STATEMENT SEQUENCE ERROR.
IEB808I TERMINATED THIS MEMBER. IEBUPDTE WILL TRY NEXT MEMBER. IEB818I HIGHEST CONDITION CODE WAS 00000004


Please help me to fix this.
Thanks,
Vidya Bhat

Hi Vidya,

Please try this code... It works

//IEFBR14 EXEC PGM=IEBUPDTE,PARM=NEW
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=V705435.VEL.LEARN.PDS,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// SPACE=(TRK,(45,15,50)),
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80)
//SYSIN DD DATA
./ ADD NAME=VEL
HOW VEL HOW ARE YOU ?
./ ENDUP

Sorry. You do need to add something, like a blank line, to the member. Try this slight change:
Code:

//UPDATE   JOB  ...
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=IEBUPDTE,PARM=NEW
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT2   DD  DSNAME=NEW.PDS,UNIT=disk,DISP=(,CATLG),
//             SPACE=(TRK,(50,,10)),
//             RECFM=FB,LRECL=80
//SYSIN    DD  DATA
./        ADD   NAME=MEMB1
<blank line>
/*
//*

In this case if you use Idcams no line must be added.

Hi Superk,
I tried with blank line also.
But I am getting the following error:
-------------------------------------------
./ ADD NAME=MEMB1

IEB829I DDNAME PARAMETER IS INVALID.

Thanks,
Vidya Bhat

This is not a error of the ADD command but a error in the parameter of DD... look for the line of error in JES message.

Hi Vidhya,

You can give blank line or a line with some message. If you have some message a new member will be created with the data you specified. Otherwise just the PDS will be created. You can give so many ADD statements and the data in the next line..

Even the following code works.
It will Just create a PDS with no member inside.
//IEFBR14 EXEC PGM=IEBUPDTE,PARM=NEW
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT2 DD DSN=V705435.VEL.LEARN.PDS,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// SPACE=(TRK,(45,15,50)),
// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80)
//SYSIN DD DATA
./ ADD NAME=VEL
./ ENDUP
/*

Please try and let me know still if you have problem.

Thanks
Vel.
