Hello,
Can anyone please give me the details about how the extents are allocated for a dataset i.e how the primary and secondary space is used,all I know is for any dataset there can be 16 extents per volume.

Hello,

Start here and look around in that manual:
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... b650/12.55?

That is the jcl language reference - something you will want to keep handy.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
