Do you want to create a empty sequential dataset with IDCAMS?
Try with this:
Code:
//STEP010I EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                     
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//INPUT    DD DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),LRECL=XX,RECFM=FB,         
//            SPACE=(X,(1,1),RLSE),DSN=MYDATASET
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                                           

for me it work very fine.

Hi MGIndaco,

Your ans is a little misleading. Although IDCAMS is entered using your JCL, it's the system initiator/terminator that "creates the ds.

I'd be interested to see if the created ds can be opened as I/P. My bet is that you can't.

If you can then I'm wrong and IDCAMS does do something to "create" the file, but I doubt it.

I think that my error happen in BLOCKSIZE... but in each case the file is created correctly and work fine for me... I tested it and I'm sure of this... I hope only in a my good understanding of your bet.

Code:
//STEP010I EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                     
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//INPUT    DD DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),LRECL=XX,RECFM=FB,BLKSIZE=xxxx,         
//            SPACE=(X,(1,1),RLSE),DSN=MYDATASET
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY


The sample above is better?

hi superk,

i tried ur example prog,but no data set was created.

i dont know what values should i code in the following sub-parameter:

catalog('catname/password')

1)what does the parameter catalog means?
2)what should i code for "catname"

why i am asking is,os rejects the key word "catalog"
it says "catalog verb improper".
Also explain brifly about all other parameters in ur examplle.
3)how to create ps and pds with idcams with example ?

In TSO, enter TSO HELP DEFNVSAM and you will see the descriptions of all the parameters, after which you will probably know as much about this function as I do. I've never seen this function used in the real world. The more I look at the description, the more I wonder where it would ever be used.

Sorry, my bad!

You want to use the ALLOCATE command. In TSO, enter TSO HELP ALLOCATE for all of the parameters:

Code:

//STEP0001 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  DELETE MYSEQ                                       
  ALLOCATE DATASET(MYSEQ) NEW REUSE CATALOG -         
  UNIT(SYSDA) RECFM(F B) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(0) -     
  SPACE(10,10) CYLINDERS                           
  DELETE MYPDS                                       
  ALLOCATE DATASET(MYPDS) NEW REUSE CATALOG -         
  UNIT(SYSDA) RECFM(F B) LRECL(80) BLKSIZE(0) -     
  SPACE(10,10) CYLINDERS DIR(92)                   
/*
//*
