vcsreddy, please refer to the "z/OS V1R6.0 DFSMS: Using Data Sets"

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/DGT2D430/CCONTENTS?DT=20040624112123

section "3.6.3 Concatenating Data Sets Sequentially":

Quote:

A sequential concatenation can include sequential data sets, PDS members, PDSE members, and UNIX files. With sequential concatenation, the system treats a PDS, PDSE, or UNIX member as if it were a sequential data set. The system treats a striped extended-format data set as if it were a single-volume data set.

Rule: You cannot concatenate VSAM data sets.
