Do you have those steps in a PROC or in the JOB itself? If it is the job itself then the solution by arbee is just right.

PostPosted: Sun Jun 11, 2006 11:40 am    Post subject: A JCL with 30 steps. Reply with quote

Guys, A JCL is having 30 steps. I want to execute only the 3rd step. One way of doing it is to put a RESTART=STEP03 in the job card and put a null statement after the 3rd step.

Does anybody know multiple ways of doing the same? Pls share the details.

TIA.

Hi,
you can execute the nth step by COND parameter. give COND=(O,LE) in the job card and give the COND=(0,GT) in the nth step which you want to execute.


Regards,
Cruise.

PostPosted: Thu Jun 22, 2006 4:01 pm    Post subject: Doubt on Cruise explanation Reply with quote

Hi Cruise,

You said COND=(O,LE) in the job card and to give the COND=(0,GT) in the nth step will execute only the N'th step.

I guess, the COND mentioned on the JOB will override the COND mentioned on STEP i.e., first the JOB COND is checked, if not satisfied, then STEP COND is checked. If not satisfied, then execute the STEP.

Cruise could you please provide some more explanation on your solution.

-Suresh.
