And you're likely to be stuck forever if you cannot even bother to post in the correct forum.

And don't use mobile phone language if you want to be taken seriously.

  1. Do not use attachments. Use copy and paste from your 3270 session to the entry form and place the screen shot surrounded by the phBB code and /code tags.
  2. Do not use SMS sort cuts like "u have to create a ps r pds dataset" in these forums. Presumably you are using a regular computer with a proper keyboard and not a "smart" phone or "tablet."
  3. Post your topic in the relevant forum. I moved this topic to the JCL forum for you this time.
The IEFBR14 program does nothing. There are two elements to creating a member in a PDS through JCL.
  • Specify a data set and member in JCL.
  • Use a program that will write data to the data set and member specified in the DD statement. For example -
    //SYSIN    DD  DUMMY
    //SYSUT2   DD  DISP=OLD,DSN=a.dataset(member)
    //SYSUT1   DD  *
    This is member in a.dataset

In one job card...

You would need to clarify that - a job card is a jb card and nothing else. It gives an identity to a job, It is the first (plus any continuations) card in a job (that is not a comment).

I suspect that what you meant was "in one job....".
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
