z/OS MVS JCL Reference

A name is optional on a JCLLIB statement. If used, code it as follows:
  • The name must begin in column 3.
  • The name is 1 through 8 alphanumeric or national ($, #, @) characters.
  • The first character must be alphabetic or national ($, #, @).
  • The name must be followed by at least one blank.
  • The name may be preceded by up to 8 aphanumeric or national characters, and then separated by a period. Coding the name in this way should not be confused with specifying an override, as can be done when coding DD statements.

If a name is not coded, column 3 must be blank.
