When used, the format of the DDNAME for an AREA, in the DBUTLTY JCL, should be:
- ABCnnn when nnn is between 1 and 999
- ABCnnnn when nnnn is higher than 999
ABC is the 3 AREA name characters.
Other formats can lead to errors like rc 65 (065) - DD Statement Missing.
Three characters DDNAME finishing with XX is reserved to Datacom software (like CXX, LXX….).
The following format:
ABC0nnn will generate a rc 65(065).
Error will occur during DBUTLTY function INIT or PREINIT when DDNAME does not follow the above rule.
It may generate other errors when not appropiately used.
