Subject: Mainframe WORK shortages
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I've been out of the mainframe world for a while and am having to look
at an unruly SAS job that I think needs a larger work lib. We are
running SAS9 and looking at the SAS PROC the default work is code as:
//WORK DD UNIT=SYSDA,
as its default.
I've got a copy of the proc in my test lib and can recode the work
definition directly as needed.
Is there a current "state of the art" now regarding larger mainframe
work files? Years ago (version 6) I remember we had created a designer
storage class which allowed the work file to span multiple volumes (up
to 5) but am not sure if that is the current method or not.
Thanks for any help.
