We have quite a few large datasets that are currently spanning multiple 3390-54 volumes. Normally SAS can only address datasets with up to 65535 tracks per volume. As the 3390-54 volumes have almost 1,000,000 tracks available this is becoming very wasteful.
I have asked our installation guys to upgrade our version of SAS, and PROC OPTIONS is now reporting
NOTE: SAS (r) 9.1 (TS1M3)
NOTE: This session is executing on the z/OS V01R07M00 platform.
NOTE: SAS 9.1.3 Service Pack 4
However when I attempt to create a DSNTYPE=LARGE dataset I receive message
IEC143I 213-14,IFG0196J,SM0804X0,SAS9,PDB,6920,SPBMXA,...dsn... which is basically saying that SAS is not prepared to open a DSNTYPE=LARGE dataset.
Am I missing something, or does this not yet work?
This is not an ODS or base Reporting procedure question (PRINT, REPORT, TABULATE). It is the kind of question that is best answered by Tech Support.
