Data set/path name
Can be a fully-qualified data set name or a pattern, an HFS file or directory, a WebSphere® MQ queue name, or a CICS® resource.

For information about specifying a WebSphere MQ queue name, see Specifying an MQ manager or queue.

For information about specifying a CICS resource, see Specifying a CICS resource.

The data set name may include a member name or name pattern in parenthesis. If the member is specified here, the associated Member field must be empty.

When you specify an HFS file or directory, you must enter a full path name. If the path name is longer than the displayed entry field, press the Expand function key (F4) to display a pop-up window in which you can enter a longer name.

The Allocation Options are only required when the "To" data set does not exist.

The Binary mode and reclen parameters are only relevant for an HFS file.
