Creating file using what? ISPF 3.2, I'd guess. If so, unfortunately, I've to say - you can't always get what you want. The LRECL limit is not optional, is not something you can get around by some trick - a z/OS (MVS) file has this limit.

However, rather intresting question is - why do you need such a(n) LRECL? Are you working on XML data? or working with USS? working with ANSI tapes, but they don't work on zOS, AFAIK.

In simple words - what is your requirement?

Anuj, USS files don't have an LRECL, which is specific to MVS files.

The TS could look at LRECL=X, BFTEK=A, RECFM=VBS.
He would need to write his own IO routine in assembler to cope
with this.
Beside that its a requirement not of this world.
