We Use the CNTL parameter to reference a CNTL statement that appears earlier in the job. The reference causes the subsystem to execute the program control statements within the referenced CNTL/ENDCNTL group.
The system searches for an earlier CNTL statement with a label that matches the label in the CNTL parameter. If the system finds no match, the system issues an error message.


So if we look your code it will leap to the step
"SFD100"


If you need more help look MVS JCL REFERENCE

What is the expansion or abbreviation for CNTL. Also can you tell about CNTL and where we use CNTL.

Hello,

On this system, you get:
Code:
/*CNTL SDF100.EXC                                     
************************ INVALID /* CONTROL STATEMENT
