1. I have created a gdg in the first step and i want to use it as output file in the second step. i mean , i want to write the output of my second step into the gdg created in the first step.

2. how frequently passwords are changed in real time environment for a user.

3. can we pass a file from sysin dd * or parm.
I have got a reply from forum that we can do it as
sysin dd *
lib'xxxx.yyy.zzzz'
//

if the above is true how to use the file xxxx.yyy.zzzz in the cobol program, i mean how to capture the file in cobol program.

You should use GDG(+1), DISP=MOD in second step O/P DSN.

I'm with Priyesh. What exactly are you trying to do with this logic? Are you passing the name of a dataset to a program? Or, are you trying to pass the contents of a dataset?

Sarbanes-Oxley, SAS-70, HIPAA, and other legislation have made the limit to be typically no more than 90 days. Most shops have always set a 30-day limit.
