We have the below control card in a year end process that has to be updated every year for the two digit year like this year 09 will be made 10.

Is there a way where we can remove the need to change the ctl card every year and parameterize the JCL some how.

Please note that we have this field available as a symbolic ... RUNYR2 = 10 which we pass from a control card that will have this value.

INCLUDE COND=(((61,1,CH,EQ,C'Y',OR,61,1,CH,EQ,C'Z'),

The digirs in BOLD need to be changed in the Sort card every year

You can use a DFSORT Symbol for the year. If you want to hardcode it, you can do it like this:



and then use CURYR in your INCLUDE statement instead of C'10'.

If you want to get the current year from the system, you can use this:



If you need something based on the RUNYR value you mentioned, explain in more detail what your setup is exactly.
