Error: +PDSM15-1  UNABLE TO DETERMINE VERSION INFORMATION FOR MEMBER BEING COMPILED

Cause

From the message Guide

PDSM15-1
UNABLE TO DETERMINE VERSION INFORMATION FOR THE MEMBER BEING COMPILED
The Compiler Interface routine is unable to determine the member control information for the member being compiled. A common cause of this message is that the program being compiled is a PDS member without member control information (for example, ISPF statistics) or that it resides in a (usually temporary) sequential data set. CICS and ISPF both use preprocessors to pass members to the compiler using such a data set. For methods to supply source member version information to the Compiler Interface, see the description of the Source/Load Cross-Reference facility in the Auditing and Comparison Facilities User Guide.
This message is also issued if the PDS member being compiled has a DD * or DUMMY data set concatenated to it. The circumvention is to concatenate a temporary disk data set in place of the DD * or DUMMY data set.
No compilation title page is produced and version information is not recorded in the object module produced during compilation.
It is possible to suppress this message with the $MISC MSGS parameter.

Environment

z/OS 2.1 and above

PDSMAN 7.7 and above

Resolution

If you want to suppress this you can perform the following updates in the PDSMINIT rules:

$MISC MSGS=N      
$MISC USEROPT=18  

 

You can refresh the rules with a F PDSMAN,NEWRULES  command on the console
