Why not DYNAMICALLY create the control card and use it?

Use SORT or your program itself to create the query

Search forum for examples

Here is one way:

First define the query you want to run.

Then write this into some file or member to be used as input to the run. While writing all of the constants, also write the run-time variable(s).
