The solution is:
1. Create the SMPMCS file on disk - PS FB 80
2. Create the relfiles on disk and call them: RFDSNPFX.FuncName.Fx
To create the relfiles I used IEBCOPY - same as the tape job.
(F1 contains JCLIN (member name = func name), F2 contains relfile 2, F3 contains relfile 3, etc...)
3. Run the SMP/E RECEIVE job - //SMPPTFIN is the SMPMCS file
4. SMP/E will read the SMPMCS file, obtain the relfile count, and process as normal reading the disk
files i.e. looking for 'RFDSNPFX.FuncName.F1', F2, F3, etc...
Therefore, if SMP/E finds the SMPMCS i/p on disk it will search for the relfiles on disk also (using the
standard naming convention - RFDSNPFX.FuncName.Fx)
thanks for the help.
