If you need to copy all catalogued versions of a gdg then only specify the gdg base name...

//SYSUT1    DD DSN=HLI.MLG.NAME,DSIP=SHR


This will pick up whichever generations are listed in the catalog e.g G0033V00,G0034V00 etc
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

If the order of the data is not important this can save some DD statements.

If the order of the data is important, suggest a simple test to make sure the data is read in the order needed. . .
Hope this helps,
