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.

Refer following JCL tutorial..
http://www.geocities.com/srcsinc/drona/programming/languages/jcl/jcl.chapter10.html

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.
