Hi,

Can DEFER parameter be used for other than Reel tape datasets? I.e :
I have a dataset with UNIT = (T6250,,DEFER). Now i am changing the UNIT parameter from T6250 to CTAPE.

Ex:

//DD1 DD DSN=PW2S.W2FM0001(+1),
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// BUFNO=14,
// DCB=(GDG.MODEL,BLKSIZE=18354,LRECL=133,RECFM=FBA),
// LABEL=RETPD=7,
// UNIT=(T6250,,DEFER)


to

//DD1 DD DSN=PW2S.W2FM0001(+1),
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// BUFNO=14,
// DCB=(GDG.MODEL,BLKSIZE=18354,LRECL=133,RECFM=FBA),
// LABEL=RETPD=7,
// UNIT=(CTAPE,,DEFER)


Thank you,

There is a link to the manuals at the top of the page. If you look in the JCL Language Reference manual, you can easily find the answer to your question.

Or alternatively you could always try and see what happens.
