Repeating FOCMASTS in JCL

Postby jinxed21 » Thu May 21, 2009 11:21 am

Hi,

Is there a way in JCL to create unique FOCMASTs name but containing the same file layout?

Currently I have 17 files that I have to read, each having the same file layout. In the JCL i want to have a way to duplicate these FOCMASTS without adding separate FOCMASTS for each of these files.

Any suggestions/ideas?
Thanks

When using FOCUS program to code a logic, it is necesary to include the FOCMAST, which contains the file layout
//CODES DD DSN=TEST.TEST1.TEST2,DISP=SHR
CODES is the focmast which contains the file layout.
