I believe there is no unit available in the name SYSUT.

Which JCL statement is the message referring to? Posting half a message and half your JCL and none of the output (apart from the message) is no good. Also it is a JCL error so why post in the DFSORT section?

just curious ...

Code:
        2 //IEF1    EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                           
        3 //DD1       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=ENRICO.TEST.NONCE,                       
          //             UNIT=NONCE,VOL=SER=NONCEV                             
ICH70001I ENRICO   LAST ACCESS AT 16:58:55 ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2011         
IEF210I ENRICO0Z IEF1 DD1 - UNIT FIELD SPECIFIES INCORRECT DEVICE NAME         


how nice if the TS had posted a bit more info...
or had replied to the requests for more info

in case of a noshow the topic will be mercilessly ethered icon_cool.gif

edited to add ...
Code:
//SORTWK01 DD UNIT=SYSUT,SPACE=(CYL,(20,20),RLSE)

probably the original post has been reworked, the SORTWK01 DD isn' t there any longer
anyway an invalid unit name will yield a different message as shown by my test

This issue is resolved now. In our qa environment there is restriction to use instream data. When I kept the sort card in a pds member then it worked.

sorry i could not reply fast enough.

Thanks All

Its a safety measure to protect case sensitive data from unwanted modifications.

jcls should be protected anyway

in test most probably the jcl was an <inline> jcl ( no proc )
under qa it was transformed in a fouled up proc with inline data ( SYSIN DD *)

and thats the message received
( just tested )

instream data is not a restriction of the qa environment,
it is a restriction of zOS up to 1.12, zOS 1.13 supports/tolerates inline data in procs
unless.... QA is 1.12 or less and the test environment is 1.13

Hi

I agrre that there may be some problem with versions as you described.

But how to protect case sensitive data in jcl ?
Is there any option available in ISPF to restrict lower case data to stay as it is?

Say if some one opens a dataset and do some little change(little change like creator or jobname change) and press enter then lower case data tends to convert.
Is there any way by which we can protect lower case data from conversion to uppercase in a dataset.

This issue arises because in db2 tables here mixed characters data is in use.

Thanks[/quote]

if a person is authorized to make changes, then it can icon_cool.gif

You cannot prevent him/her from making errors.

and anyway ISPF provides lots of messages when the profile changes ( CAPS ON/OFF )

if Your colleagues are just plain dumb, nothing will prevent them from fouling up things


Code:
 ****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
 ==MSG> -CAUTION- Profile changed to CAPS OFF (from CAPS ON) because data       
 ==MSG>           contains lower case characters.                               


Code:
 ****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
 ==MSG> -CAUTION- Profile changed to CAPS ON (from CAPS OFF) because the       
 ==MSG>           data does not contain any lower case characters.

plain bullshit and ignorance

the only moment that You have to enter caps off is when You start using lower case chars
after that the profile behaves accordingly, and data will not be fouled up

that' s the meaning of the two messages I posted

Do you issue a caps off each time you open a dataset ??
Please say truthfully.

If you say yes too i will say i don't believe. ..icon_smile.gif

do You understand the difference between NEW and OLD/existing ?
You have to issue the CAPS OFF only on a NEW/empty dataset member
after that ISPF will tell/warn

if You do not believe it is You problem not mine icon_cool.gif

it would be wiser for You to get a better grasp of ISPF behavior and PROFILE processing!

Wrong in so many ways.

No one should be modifying code, let alone data, in any data set to which more than one person has WRITE access; they should copy it to their own sandbox libraries and play with it there (code merging is a whole nother topic). I've reprimanded my analysts for making changes directly to the staging libraries.

And -- how shall I make this clear without either profanity or physical violence -- you pay attention to what you are supposed to be doing! icon_mad.gif Not to the cricket match playing in the break room, not to that hot chick that keeps wafting past your desk in a cloud of sandalwood, but to your bloody workstation!

I have JCL data sets with lower-case comments and programmer names in them. That means that ISPF sets the profile to CAPS OFF when I edit them. And -- guess what? -- I remember to change the profile and/or use CAPS LOCK appropriately.

If you can't, I don't want you working in the same shop as me. And I'll do my best to see that you don't.
