the question is not sort related, is just JCL related ...
review the JCL manuals for the DD statement syntax!

anyway no, what You ask cannot be done ( in general ) !

but if the the input datasets are GDGs then.
using as dataset name the name of the base You will process all the generations
( as a concatenation of datasets )

Well, I think you can but not as you show. Do as Enrico suggests and read the manual and read about concatenating datasets.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

Even with concatenation, it will not be automagic. . .

Each individual dataset name will be on a separate DD statement. There is no standard way to "wildcard" the DSN= parameter.
Hope this helps,
