Problem:

The following JCL is not honoring the EXCEPT.

LOAD  DSN(*                         - 
       EXCEPT DEFAULT.MODEL.*       -      
              VSAM.COMPRESS.CONTROL -      
        OBJECTS(VOL(D8LC2C          -      
                 D8LC34             -      
                 D8LC36             -      
                 D8L000             -      
                 D8L001

Cause

In order for the VOLUMES list to be recognized, the EXCEPT should be later in the statement.

Solution:

Note that the EXCEPT statement now follows the overrides.

Example

LOAD DSN(VINCE.CISZ.KSDS  -                
           CLUSTER(VOL(LV4201 -              
            LV4202  -                        
            LV4300  -                        
ETC )) -                                     
EXCEPT DEFAULT.MODEL.*       -               
      VSAM.COMPRESS.CONTROL )
