IEBGENER is used for copying PS datasets.

How can you create an empty dataset?

Please explain or I'm wrong.

Look at the IEBGENER (Sequential Copy/Generate Data Set) Program in the utilities manual.
Set whatever allocation or recfm you want with the SYSUT2 DD statement and dummy up or point to an empty dataset with the SYSUT1 DD statement....
There are some examples in the manual.

What do you call a dataset which has no data in it - empty.

use SYSUT1 as a DD DUMMY, et voila, an empty SYSUT2 dataset.
