I am having a doubt in the FILE CONTROL REGION. Iam having the a snippet of the section like this-

SELECT MST-TRAN3004 ASSIGN TO UT-S-TRAN3004.
SELECT SALES-FAM ASSIGN TO UT-S-SALESFAM.
SELECT AIDB-XTRCT ASSIGN TO UT-S-AIDBXTRT.
In the bove code why are we using this UT-S in the assign clause , whereas only TRAN3004 is used as DDNAME in the JCL for referring that file.

If anybody has some knowledge about this , then please throw a light on this. I shall be grateful.

hi Madhu Kashyap,

As for as my knowledge goes, the UT-S is for more productive run. this is to specify the OS that, this is going to be a unit test run or something else. This will result with reduced consumption of resources.

suggestions or still more clear comments welcomed..

Thanks Gowtham. Are you sure that this is for the same thing or it signifies something else. How is it interpreted by the compiler?

With Regards,
Madhu
