Hi,

If I am using a dataset as output with Disp=Mod, the data will be appended to the original dataset, if the dataset exist. But suppose if the mod dataset doesnot exist then the mod parameter will create the new dataset. Now, what I cannot understand is that if new dataset is created out of Mod parameter then what will be the attribute of it? Will it be the same of input dataset or something different?

"Attribute" is meaningless in this context. Please enhance.

If you have access to a mainframe, have you tried it? Have you checked the JCL manual?

You need to show the job you're using to create the data set and explain exactly what attributes you are talking about. Varous attributes can be set or defaulted by a program, the system, DD parameters, etc.

If you tell us what "attribute" means to you, someone should be able to clarify. . .
