1) DO NOT tag on to an existing thread over 10 years old

2) DO NOT moan because it isn't answered fast

3) Try multi volume or multi work library

If it is a batch job then use the JCL to make the WORK DD name multi volume
Or define a DD WORK2 and use that in conjunction with WORK - code changes will be required

AND have you spoken with your storage management team to see if they can help - it may be a site related issue.

This is a VOLUNTEER forum -- as in, questions are answered when people have the time, the interest, and the knowledge to respond. It is not unusual for posts to go without answers for days ... weeks ... months ... years and hence pleading for responses (especially after a short time) actually REDUCES the chance you will get answers as people who would have responded decide your pleading makes it not worth the time to respond.

Unless you have specified DSNTYPE=LARGE, using SPACE=(CYLS,(4000,3500)) is useless. Without DSNTYPE=LARGE, the biggest data set you can allocate is 4,369 cylinders on a single volume. So you're not able to get 3500 cylinders as a secondary.

Read in the MVS JCL Reference manual about the DD statement and how to allocate multi volume data sets.

Hi, Could you please explain, how would DATACLAS help?

These are the two options I could understand,
DSNTYPE=LARGE
Allocating work dataset in multiple volumes

Regards,
Vasanth.S

SAS uses the WORK DD name to hold temporary (one-level) SAS data sets. WORK is not related to the SORTWKnn DD statements. One thing I've done in the past is to allocate a large SAS data set and use DATA DDNAME.SASNAME instead of DATA SASNAME -- the latter uses WORK.SASNAME by default and if you're having trouble with WORK space using the two-level name can help alleviate the issue.

I totally overlooked. Thanks for the correction.

I corrected my post, so it does not mislead people.
