B37 Abend for a DD statement that is not defined in the JCL

Hi,

I'm receiving below error in a JCL.

Error from SDSF logs:

The below message from SDSF log is pointing to a DD name of SORTIN, however, I don't have any such DD name defined in the JCL.
IEC030I B37-04,IFG0554A,SYS4UMTA,RACFRW2,SORTIN,E208,3T3001,SYS13243.T041837.RA

Appreciate if someone can assist me on this.

Let me know incase anymore info is needed.
Best Regards !

From the messages you provided.

IGD101I SMS ALLOCATED TO DDNAME (SORTIN )

A program can use dynamic allocation to create what amounts to a DD statement; this is what happened here.

TSO as we know it, could not function without dynamic allocation. One of the options with dynamic allocation is to specify the DD name the program wants, which is what happened here.

Another option, of course, is to let dynamic allocation create a DD name (usually SYSnnnnn) and return the DD name it chose to the program; the program copies the DD name selected by dynamic allocation to the DCB or ACB before it is opened. Many IBM programs provide a mechanism so the program that called the IBM program can specify an alternate DD name to use instead of the standard DD name. The sort program does not provide this mechanism, so the RACFRW program uses dynamic allocation to create a SORTIN DD statement. Obviously the data set it allocated is too small. I've never used the report writer, and I'm not willing to work my way through the manual to determine if there is a way to influence this data set size.

Good luck.
