What is the Max number of files we can override in a JCL.
I have an i/p file with 10 concatenated files in Job.
// DD DSN=INPUT1,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT2,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT3,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT4,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT5,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT6,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT7,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT8,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=INPUT9,DISP=SHR
My job runs 12 times every day.When any job abends because of some issue,I need to include 10 input files of abended job in next job by giving overrides to INPUT
The next job will have 20 input files concatenated.
what is the max number of files we can override like this.Is there any limit?
When I searched I found as
'3273 is the limit of dd statments which can be coded in a single JCL so its a limit of datasets which can be concatenated
Please correct me If am Wrong'.
So I am not sure if that is the correct count.
Can you please let me know if the above is correct or do we have any other limit?
