You will want to begin by learning how to define a generagion data group using IDCAMS.

After you have defined the group, you can creeate the required generations with the necessary sorting (yo may need to know the sort product used on your system).

When there are problems or questions, post them here and someone should be able to help.
Hope this helps,
