And what did the manual tell you when you looked up the SB37 abend? If you have trouble with the manual, here's a link that might help you:

I suspect somewhere there is an IEC030I in the output. . .

When you look up the SB37 in the System Completion Codes manual it says:
This system completion code is accompanied by message IEC030I.

You need to read about the IEC030I in the System Messages Manual.
Hope this helps,

To simplify a long story, your allocation request is too small. The long story, which is in the description for the IEC030I message, might give you some idea what to do, but this description is terribly obscure. What you have to do is figure out what your allocation should be, update your JCL, and try again.

Aren't you missing the DCB parameter? When defining a dataset as new you need to tell the operating system, such as :
//dd1 dsn=name,

Aren't you missing the date of the last post in these threads?
