Tape or disk (it matters)? Which release of z/OS (which also matters)?

It's OS 390. And even if its a tape or disc length can't exceed 32760 right?

On OS/390, yes the record length cannot exceed 32760, although there may be an exception for ASCII tapes (I don't have access to the OS/390 manuals any more to verify that the exception goes back that far).

Hello,

I suggest this is more a "want" than a "need". . . What if the length increased to 90,000 or 250,000. . .

Write multiple records and then work with these "pieces" of the whole.
