Hi,

My query is on SELECT clause in COBOL.Usually we give the JCL DD name in the SELECT statements as below

SELECT IN-FILE ASSIGN TO IN-RAW
SELECT OUT-FILE ASSIGN To OUT-RAW

but in some programs the DD file names are prefixed with UT-S like:

SELECT IN-FILE ASSIGN TO UT-S-IN-RAW(in JCL the DD name is only IN-RAW)
SELECT OUT-FILE ASSIGN To UT-S-OUT-RAW

What exactly is the meaning of the prefix UT-S.

Waiting for the response.

I believe it should be project specific,becaue I never see this in my project.

hy Preetha,

UT-S is Unit sequential, which can be omited also,
therefore is the same...

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the reply.Just wanted to know is there any advantage of using that in program because not all the programs are using UT-S.What can be the reason to specify it in some programs.

Regards,
Preeth
