Hi,

I am facing a issue when deleting all versions of GDG and trying to create an empty Version.

Code:
PS010    EXEC PGM=SORT                                     
SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                       
SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                       
SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*                                       
SORTIN   DD DSN=XXXX(0),DISP=SHR   
SORTOUT  DD DSN=XXXX.TEMP,         
            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                       
            SPACE=(CYL,(200,100),RLSE),                   
            VOL=(,,,99),                                   
            RECFM=FB,LRECL=7030,DSORG=PS                   
SYSIN    DD  DSN=&CCARD..CCARD(SRTCPY),                   
             DISP=SHR                                     

//**********************************************************************
//* PS020:  DELETE ALL GENRATIONS OF XXXX FILE                         
//**********************************************************************
//PS020  EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                               
//DD01     DD DSN=XXXX,                         
//            DISP=(MOD,DELETE,DELETE),                                 
//            SPACE=(TRK,(1,1),RLSE)                                   
//*   
//**********************************************************************
//* PS030:  COPY TEMP FILE to XXXX +1             
//**********************************************************************
//*                                                                     
//PS030    EXEC PGM=SORT                                               
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SORTIN   DD DSN=TEMP,DISP=SHR           
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=XXXX(+1),                     
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                                 
//            SPACE=(CYL,(200,100),RLSE),                               
//            VOL=(,,,99),                                             
//            RECFM=FB,LRECL=7030,DSORG=PS                             
//SYSIN    DD  DSN=&CCARD..CCARD(SRTCPY),                               
//             DISP=SHR                               


It is executing successfully. But it is creating XXXX.G0005V00 version directly instead of creating XXXX.G0001V00

Please let me know how to rectify this.

Advance thanks.

You need to understand the difference between generation and version

Have you tried a job break after the delete step. i.e. a NEW job to create the +1 GENERATION

I think you will find that the catalog entry for the current GENERATION will be kept until EOJ.

Remember, when you create a +1 within a job, it will always be referred to as +1 until the creating job has ended.

Im also curious on this one and have tried it. Expat is correct, so in your case, you'll be able to meet your expectation if you run your step PS030 in a separate job.

Please use the code tags.After 11 years you should know how, and when, to use them.
Coded for you.
