I need some help with an interpretation issue I'm having?
Does the information below regard to SORTWKnn data sets only or also to SWnnWKmm, DATAWKnn, DAnnWKmm, STATWK01, ST01WKnn, ST02WKnn data sets?
I can't make it out if the phrase " Sort work data sets" relates to "Sortwork-datasets (SORTWKnn )" or "Work Datasets for DFSort (also SWnnWKmm, DATAWKnn and so on) ". I'm almost sure it is the second interpretation but I need to be completely sure for adjusting the ACS routines.

Kind regards

Sort work data sets cannot span volumes. ....

When assigning a data class, it is important that you turn off the ability to allocate sort work data sets on multiple volumes (either directly defining them preventively as multi-volume or letting space constraint relief expand a data set to multiple volumes). DFSORT can only use the part of the sort work data set that resides on the first volume; all other parts on an additional volume will go unused by DFSOR, which wastes disk space and likely causes SORT CAPACITY EXCEEDED failures.

Ron Bakker NL,

All of the above mentioned are still sort work data sets, but with a different naming convention and they can't span volumes.

Thank you Skolusu for your swift reply. Now I can safely adjust the ACS routines accordingly.
