Hi all,

I need to know how to override steplib in JCL for a called program. I have a program A that calls program B. I checked in the Proc to see if program B is used anywhere at all. There is no mention of program B. I have overrode program A in JCL with the load i wanted but i also want to change the load for program B. Please advise on how this needs to be done.

Thanks
Saara

One option is to compile/assemble program B in a load library which does not have any other programs/subroutines used by the executing program.

Put this library on top of the STEPLIB concatenation. Or use this library in a JOBLIB statement at the top of the JCL (after the jobcard, of course).

e.g., if you have program A, B, C in APP.LOADLIB, then compile B into MY.LOADLIB and code STEPLIB as below:

// EXEC PGM=A
//STEPLIB DD DSN=MY.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=APP.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR
//.... rest of the JCL.

Hope this helps.
Panda.
