No - but you can generate and submit a job using Cobol and allocating the DDname, to which you write the JCL, to INTRDR - look up the JCL? manual for the exact format.

Having said that, you can allocate and delete files 'on the fly' but that is not with JCL but a utility program and if you check other threads you will get the name BPXWDYN or something like that.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
