Execute the JCL Procedure "SAS", and pass the value of "ICOUT" to the parameter "OUT".

Reply with quote

The first, much appreciate LKmi and Prandip's answers.
I am new for JCL. I still have some question:
1) What is or Where is the value of "ICOUT" from? from SAS output or from JCL dd?
2) When I ran a job, I got the file is full or file is damage.
So, does this cause output datset space? I mean not enough space?
like: SPACE=(CYL,(10,1),RLSE).
So, how to decide the cyl size? I tried 1000, but seem too much.
3) For "Exec PGM=..., Parm=INBGENER". Where the parm to pass to?

Sorry for those beginner question, I am new. Thank for answer?

Hi, Prandip:

Much appreciate your help. I still want to know. What is the value of "ICOUT".
Exec SAS Out=ICOUT, is return a dataset or something else. Because I didn't define dataset name below.

Thanks

ICOUT is a literal that is being passed to the Proc to replace the current value of the variable OUT. Without knowing the contents of your SAS Proc, I have no way to determine what it is being used for. Hopefully the creator of the Proc was nice enough to document within the Proc all of the required and optional parameters and what they are used for.

Let SMS manage this stuff for you. It shouldn't be necessary for you to know. If for some reason SMS is not available, try allocating your datasets by average blocksize. Talk to your Storage Management folks and see if they have a particular storage calculation algorithm for you to use.
