Assembly of CA DISK SVC module ADSMVS60 fails with Condition Code 8 and message

"ASMA167E Required name missing"

for the LOCTR statement from the MLIST macro at the end of the source code.

Following the related extract from assembly listing:


                       00020       10264+RS32     EQU   32

                                   10265+         LOCTR ,  

** ASMA167E Required name missing                         

** ASMA435I Record 89 in your.CCUWMAC(MLIST) on volume: vvvvvv

000080                 00080 00080 10266+CPOOLPOL LOCTR    




The Problem occurs, if the Assembler runs with SYSIN DD * followed by the source code from ADSMVS60 as in-stream data.

In this case the &SYSIN_MEMBER variable, used by the MLIST macro to create the label for the LOCTR statement, is not resolved resulting in 

"** ASMA167E Required name missing".


Don't use SYSIN DD * to assemble ADSMVS60.

Use SYSIN DD referring to member ADSMVS60 in a library.

NOTE: Changes should not be made to ADSMVS60 in CCUWSAMP, as this library is under SMPE control and changes might be lost after maintenance for this module. Copy ADSMVS60 to a user library and when customized install ADSMVS60 running the JCL from member USERMOD1 in the CCUWJCL library:

The USERASM DD in USERMOD1 refers to the user library containing the modified ADSMVS60 source code
