#JO - #JEND problem

Post by Tejas » Thu Jan 24, 2008 8:01 pm

Facing an issue...

I am using #JO -#JEND combination in a jcl, to make sure that a certain step is omitted when the job runs with a particular schid id.

//*step01 exec pgm=icegener
//sysin dd dummy
//step02 exec pgm=icegener
//sysin dd dummy

However, when i do a JEM on the jcl it gives me a warning 'DUPLICATE PARAMETER 'SYSIN' '.

It is considering the 2 steps to be single one.

Do i have the correct syntax for #JO ? Or is it that the #JO/#JI funcationality has some catch that i have missed?

I have never heard of #JO and #JEND, nor can I fine anything in the JCL manuals that look like that. I suspect that this is part of your scheduling package language, and not anything IBM

Let us know what you find

These are commands, normally used in CA-7.
Using these commands, we can either execute or stop execution of some steps in a jcl.
