Looks like a diagnostic aide someone added that would display a value for the variable "&LOCIMS" in the job's output listing.

Here's a link where IEFBR14 is explained. Could be your IEFBR14 has been modified (or a new one has been written replacing the standard one). As superk said: it's not the standard IEFBR14.

Looks like your can use symbolics without the need of a proc. In your jcl at step iefbr14 this symbolic should be present in one of your DD-statements. Example:

// SET GDS='0127'
//ALLOCATE EXEC PGM=IEFBR14,PARM='&GDS'
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//*D1 DD DSN=ULLYYYYY.TSI.A0127.PAYAUD,
//DD1 DD DSN=ULLYYYYY.TSI.A&GDS..PAYAUD,
// DISP=(MOD,DELETE,DELETE),
// SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),
// DCB=(DSORG=PS,RECFM=VB,LRECL=500,BLKSIZE=6004),
// UNIT=SYSDA

Sorry for the mistake: missed a part

Executed it myself and this is the result:


//$$NL58L7 JOB NPNL0000,
// $$NL58,
// NOTIFY=$$NL58,CLASS=1,
// MSGLEVEL=(1,1)
// SET SYM='GEORGE'
//PLKED EXEC PGM=IEFBR14,PARM='&SYM'
IEFC653I SUBSTITUTION JCL - PGM=IEFBR14,PARM='GEORGE'
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//DD1 DD DSN=$$NL58.&SYM,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,0),
// DISP=(MOD,DELETE,DELETE)
IEFC653I SUBSTITUTION JCL - DSN=$$NL58.GEORGE,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,0),DISP=(MOD
