When talking about GDS it is important to use the correct terminology, as both version and generation are both valid in terms of a GDS.
It is a well known fact that only one version of a GDS may exist at any one time, however, multiple generations may exist together.
Please learn and use the correct terminology when posting, as using the wrong term can cause confusion and possibly delay a resolution to your problem.
Also, looking back on your previous posts you appear to be using both SYNCSORT and DFSORT in the titles of your posts. Can you please clarify EXACTLY which product that you are using by running the code below and posting the full output from the JES SYSOUT element.
Again, with your previous postings, you start a thread and have never once returned to that thread to give the forum an update about the status of your problem. Please make the effort to do so in future.
This request also includes providing answers to questions asked, as in a previous post, December 2009, I have asked for exactly the same information, but unfortunately just like Diana Ross, "I'm still waiting".
Sorry for not coming back to the previous posts. I will take care of that in future.
Regarding the exact product, here is my JES SYSOUT for the code you gave:

can you generate 2 generations of the same gdg in one step?
It works for me (as well)
The OP needs to do it dynamically based on the number of input records. I feel that requires either a JCL created on the fly based on the input record count or some REXX code and not just a SORT split.
