Hi,

My requirement is to create a KSDS file and the first qualifier in the file name should be substituted with system user id(Sysuid).

The below code substitues symbolic parameter inside sysin dd * :

Code:
//E1  EXPORT SYMLIST=(DSNAME)                   
//S1  SET    DSNAME=ABC                     
//STEP002  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                     
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SYSIN    DD *,SYMBOLS=JCLONLY                 
   DEFINE CLUSTER                               
           (NAME(&DSNAME..DUMMY.TEST1)     -   
                 DATACLAS(EXTADR)               
                 KEYS(39 0)                     
                 RECORDSIZE(347 347)           
                 FREESPACE(19 11)               
                 SHAREOPTIONS(2 3)             
                 SPEED                         
                 VOLUMES(* *))                 
       DATA(NAME(&DSNAME..DUMMY.TEST1.DATA) 
                 CONTROLINTERVALSIZE(8192)         
                 CYLINDERS(50 50))                 
      INDEX(NAME(&DSNAME..DUMMY.TEST1.INDEX)       
                 CONTROLINTERVALSIZE(2048)         
                 CYLINDERS(10  5))                 
/*       


Now, how to code the same without using set statement ?
Also ABC needs to be replaced with SYSUID. I tried with &SYSUID which is not working.

Thank you in advance.

Please give me some hint so that i can proceed further.. I read manual and searched in google but could not find anything useful.

Talk to your site support group. Use of symbolic parameters in instream data is NOT automatic -- for JES2, a specific parameter has to be set in the initialization of JES2, and this parameter is by job class (not global) so you could be having a problem because you're running in the wrong job class, or because your site support group has not set up the parameter in JES, and only your site support group can tell you for sure which job class(es) are set up for instream symbolic parameters.
