I need to get a value which is in a SEQ file to assign it to a JCL symbol and then use this symbol in a PROC

Ex : value 50 in SEQ file
return 50 in &A so that &A=50
then do a loop in a PROC 50 times
So, there's 2 questions :
1- how to return 50 ?
2- how to execute 50 times ?

1) CANNOT BE DONE
2) CANNOT BE DONE

the only alternative is to build dynamically the JCL and submit it thru the internal reader
