MAINFRAME - TIP OF THE DAY : When you use COUNT operator to set a return code of 12 or 4 if a specified data set is EMPTY, NOTEMPTY, HIGHER(n), LOWER(n), EQUAL(n) or NOTEQUAL(n). where n is a specified number of records. If you use the RC4 operand, SORT sets RC=4; otherwise it sets RC=12. E.g. COUNT FROM(IN) EMPTY

My JCL uses IEBCOMPR to compare two datasets. The return code of this step is 12. I want to reset it to 4. Please help me to achieve this.

Note: This is the only step in my JCL.

I don't know why you'd think this is possible, but it's not. A step's return-code is what it is.

Try using SET command. I am not sure whether it will work or not.
Just try.

Hello,

As MrSpock said, you CANNOT change the return code of a step once it's issued.

AFAIK, the SET command is used to initialize symbolic parameters in JCL.
