Hi,

Will we be able to override the symbolic variable at the suffix of a dataset?

Pls see below the proc.

Code:

//TESTPRC PROC INFILE
//STEP0010 EXEC PGM=SORT
/*******************************************************
//SORTIN   DD DSN=ABCD.TEST.&INFILE,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DUMMY


Job

Code:

//ABCUSER1
//TESTJOB EXEC TESTPRC,
//           INFILE='INPUT1'

Hello,

Suggest you run a little test and post here if anything unexpected/unwanted happens.

Why is the input "SHR"?

You face this problem only with "suffix" or with any other node/s as well?

Hi all,

I was not able to override the symbolic variables in proc from jcl. I thought that I had faced this issue because I was having a symbolic override at suffix.

It was an issue with compilation of PROC in ENDEVOR. We have to give the JCL name in comments of SCL while staging the proc into Dev region. Thanks.

Thanks for posting what wprked for you. As you've never mentioned about compilation of PROC in ENDEVOR - I hope, now you understand that the initial post from you was not having enough information to provide you a good reply... icon_smile.gif
