Problem Note 41191: The FILEVAR= option in the INFILE or FILE statement does not work properly with the INFILE/FILE user exit
If you specify the FILEVAR= option in the same INFILE or FILE statement in which you are also using an INFILE/FILE user exit, the exit only is called for the first file that is specified through the FILEVAR= option. This behavior can lead to incorrect input or output because the data is not going through the INFILE/FILE user exit beyond the first file that is specified.
The only circumvention is to concatenate the files in JCL or in the FILENAME statement and not use the FILEVAR= option in the INFILE or FILE statement.
