//*DATASET statement

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Purpose: Use the //*DATASET statement to identify the beginning of an in-stream data set, which can contain JCL statements or data. (The //*ENDDATASET statement ends the in-stream data set.) The data set can be used as input to a dynamic support program (DSP), such as OUTSERV.

Note: Make sure the operator includes a C operand on the *CALL command for the reader that reads a job containing this statement if it contains a MODE=C parameter.
