I am using the Different temporary name for each step, e.g. &&T1 for step1, &&T2 for step2, etc.. its working fine.

Some times, i am getting SB37 in Temp name. more over i am being used Large CYL. Can you please advice me how to avoid SB37 inthis case ?

You could try using DISP=(MOD,DELETE) for the temporary files instead of DISP=(MOD,PASS). I think that will delete the space after each step, so you'll only need space for one temporary data set at a time rather than for all of them at the same time. If that doesn't do it, then you'll need to increase the space available for the temporary files.
