AUXDSN
Specifies an installation-specific data set name to be used as the auxiliary file for a full function edit session.

You can specify any valid name for this data set. If you specify &&USER. as a high-level qualifier for AUXDSN, the data set name has a high-level qualifier of your user ID. If you specify &&PREFIX. as the high-level qualifier for AUXDSN, the data set name has a high-level qualifier of the user's TSO PREFIX.

The auxiliary file must be a REUSEable RRDS file, whose record length definitions are compatible with the file being edited. If this field is left blank, an RRDS file is defined for the edit session and subsequently deleted.
