Thank you to Jos van der Velden, Paul M. Dorfman, Puddin' Man, Neal Musitano Jr. and Frank Yaeger for your suggestions.
I learned from SAS Institute that SAS can not determine how many records are stored in a SAS dataset stored on cartridges and therefore defaults to the SAS work datasets of 3 -6 datasets maximum.
However, I was able to invoke dynamic work datasets when I used the SAS sort options and added the following cards to my JCL as suggested by Frank Yaeger.
