Hi,

If you want to submit a new job when a job finishes successfully (and you don't use a scheduler to do the work for you), why not simply copy the JCL to the internal reader?:
Code:

//* -----------------------------------------------------
//* *** COPY - SUBMIT JOB TO INTRDR                     
//* -----------------------------------------------------
//COPY    EXEC PGM=ICEGENER,COND=(0,NE)                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                                     
//SYSUT1   DD  DSN=YOUR.JOB.LIBRARY(YOURJOB),DISP=SHR   
//SYSUT2   DD  SYSOUT=(A,INTRDR)                         


N.B.: copying jcl to the internal reader is essentially the same as submitting the jcl. In the above example, the job located in YOUR.JOB.LIBRARY(YOURJOB) will be submitted!

Hope this helps...

Hi Martijn,

Thanks for your input.
Can you pls explain me the concept of internal reader? Here the previous Job is a production job which is run on a daily basis. I only have the time when the job will begin and end (approx).

Every time when the job runs, I want to copy a VSAM file.
Can you pls guide me

Thanks & Regards,
Yogesh
