Hello and welcome to the forum,

I suggest you work with others involved with this "requirement" and reconsider the direction. From the little you've posted, i believe this approach would create more problems than it will cure.

Why does someone believe that a new gdg should be created for each of the named files in the file list dataset?
Hope this helps,
