Hi,

I have one doubt on 'dd names'. please clarify.........

select 'filename' assign to 'dd name' the file opend in output mode.

in my job card i did not specify the dd name.

What will happen?

I think the query is clear.

Thanks & Regards
Seshu

It will not show an error.
But its purpose will not be solved.
For eg: u r writting to a file... the write statment will be sucessful, but it will not be written in the file.
The same for read as well.

hi frnd,
without specifying the DD name how the file will get opened. it will throw the error. check it. the error no will be in 30 to 39 series not clear.
