Does your data have a date in it that would help identify which month it is for? If, use that and not a DDNAME. Or just know which DDNAME refers to which month. If you know your processing date then you can relate your data and DDNAME to that.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Have you gone and read how GDGs work? It's been explained that when you reference the GDG base, it will bring in all existing versions. If you need to reference files for only the current year, then define your GDG with a limit of 12, and set the option to empty. Now go and read the manual to see what that will do.
