Hi

I worked in SAS approximately 4 years in windows environment. Now I want to use SAS with mainframe. But I have no idea of mainframe. I just want to execute simple sas code in mainframe to get an idea.
I used below code:

Code:
//STEP   EXEC  SAS                                                   
//OUTFILE   DD  DSN=E147.TEST.PVS,                                   
//          DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                                 
//          SPACE=(CYL,(1000,100)),DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=300,BLKSIZE=0)
//SYSIN     DD  *                                                     
DATA OUTFILE.OUT;                                                     
  X = 5;                                                             
  Y = 10;                                                             
RUN;   


JCL is working fine. I write very simple sas datastep. After executing i am getting error "ERROR: Library OUTFILE is not in a valid format for access method SASE7.". Please help me how I can run the sas code in mainframe.

What is OUTFILE supposed to be, a flat file or SAS format dataset.

If it's a SAS dataset use RECM=FS,LRECL=27998,BLKSIZE=27998

Errrrrrrrrrrrrr, isn't that rather a large space allocarion for one observation icon_eek.gif

Hello and welcome to the forum,

I suspect you are not the first in your organization to run SAS on the mainframe.

Suggest you look at some process that already works and talk with whoever runs/supports this working process - then change your job accordingly.

As Expat mentions, that does appear to be a rather large space allocation. . .

Some installations have other JCL parameters for saslibs; that may or may not also set the LRECL for you.

Check on DATACLAS or MGMTCLAS.

As noted, check existing code to clone.
