No. Not possible under z/OS. Unix System Services, z/Linux, yes.

The limit on MVS qualified data set names (those with periods) is 8 characters between periods -- and that is an absolute limit. Your plan to use 9 characters between periods is not possible.

How are you doing the upload -- FTP or NDM or something else?
Are you wanting to send your file to Unix System Services on a mainframe?

"Spec change" :-)

Hopefully to be reflected in all the design documents, and circulated to designers so they don't try to use "qualifiers" longer than eight, or those which don't start with the correct type of character, ever again....
