Hello,
what options do we have to specify a "common" steplib DD statement being referenced by many jobs. So when we need to make a change (like adding a new load library) we have to do it in one place and all the jobs will pick up the change ?
Should we use JCL procedures ? Are there any other options ?
Regards,
Nenad

The system already supports this, as expat alluded, with the link list. Some sites support application program libraries in the link list, some do not. You would have to work with your site support group.
