Hello,

These questions are getting worse and worse. . . :(

We are here to help, not try to teach when someone has no foundation at all. . .
Hope this helps,

As others have stated, the question has no meaning. The mostly likely interpretation of "step" is a step in JCL. A step has no version. Another person suggested something about a GDG data set, possibly in this context:
//ASTEP    EXEC PGM=ABADPGM
//AGDG      DD  DISP=(NEW,CATLG),---,DSN=AGDG(+1)
This JCL will catalog the generation data set as AGDG.GggggV00. The "00" is the "version" of generation gggg. The value assigned to gggg depends on other data sets in the generation data group. Notice that I did not specify Vvv. This is because a new generation is always "version" 00. It might be that is the answer that was wanted.
