Hi,

I have 100 steps in a jcl...And my requirement is ...

1) I need to run only step4 and step5
2) I should not edit the jcl
3) I can use job card to fulfil this requirement.

Can anyone through some light on it....

Thanks,
Deepu

time is your problem not mine. I volunteer this information, for free, on my own time.

Knowing the which manual contains the answer and where to find the answer is the goal.
After all, no one can remember everything, but we can remember how to find answers when shown where to look.

Also, this is not a chat room; so stop using chat room language or abbreviations of you own making.
This is technical forum where complete words and sentences will be used to communicate.

HI Deepu,

Put RESTART commnad in the job card like RESTART=STEP004 and put a null character (// ) after STEP005,so it will start from step4 and end in step5,only 2 steps will execute...

and dont get dishearted abt whatever others say....
these ppl may cant give you answers but can show you attitudes....

sumit - welcome to the board.
You are not the right person to comment on the guys who has helped hundreds of people by answering their queries.


I agree with you , people who are posting queries in these forums - "Interview Questions" they expect the answers on the same Thread.

except of course if you need a job card with parms such as
SCHENV=
CLASS=
MSGCLASS=
to avoid the defaults.

You have been here for over 3 1/2 years and this is the best you could do for your first post. . . Mercy.

Obviously you have not looked at many of the thousands of posts where excellent answers have been provided (this topic included).
