Question:

How can I correct the STEPLIB +? - DATA SET NOT FOUND message that I received when trying to run a form in Batch mode?

Environment:
z/OS 1.11 and above.
Answer:

The "STEPLIB +? - DATA SET NOT FOUND" message will be generated if a Batch Library entry is empty on the "TSO System Profile/CA Report Facility Datasets/Batch controls" screen, like so:

Batch Library 1 : DB2.SYSTEM.CDBALOAD %PRFBAT1 

Batch Library 2 : DB2.SYSTEM.SDSNEXIT %PRFBAT2 

Batch Library 3 : DB2.SYSTEM.SDSNLOAD %PRFBAT3 

Batch Library 4 : %PRFBAT4 

Batch Library 5 : %PRFBAT5 

To correct this message, enter an entry on every line. Duplicate libraries can be entered, like so:

Batch Library 1 : DB2.SYSTEM.CDBALOAD %PRFBAT1 

Batch Library 2 : DB2.SYSTEM.CDBALOAD %PRFBAT2 

Batch Library 3 : DB2.SYSTEM.SDSNEXIT %PRFBAT3 

Batch Library 4 : DB2.SYSTEM.SDSNEXIT %PRFBAT4  

Batch Library 5 : DB2.SYSTEM.SDSNLOAD %PRFBAT5
