Subject: FILE statement for creating members of a PDS
On MVS, I am trying to create a PDS with a variable number of members from a
datastep. The libname for the dataset is allocated in JCL (disp=new).
The member names are created in the data step. I am having trouble getting
the right format of FILE to do this. Option FILEVAR seems to insist on the
physical file name which I do not have in the datastep. Also, When does SAS
close a file opened by a FILE statement.
Any help will be appreciated.
