hi all,

Code:
//TSOSJOT4 JOB (12345),'JCL',CLASS=E,                 
//           MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,               
//           MSGLEVEL=(1,1)                           
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                         
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                               
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=TSOSJOT.OJT.IEBS,DISP=SHR           
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=TSOSJOT.OJT.IEBD,DISP=SHR           
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY   


this is the code which iam using for IEBGENER if i comment the SYSPRINT statement it throws a JCL error SYSPRINT DD STATEMENT MISSING. let me know whether a sysprint is mandatory for IEBGENER utility.

thanks
ram

Its not... But you need to code some thing to guide your O/p of JCL Code.
You can code SYSOUT instead.

//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*

Hi Martin,

Just now I ran a job thru fine without SYSPRINT.
Code:
//S0P0   EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                 
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=USERID.RECORDS.INPUT,   
//         DISP=SHR                         
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=USERID.RECORDS.INPUT.RE,
//         DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),           
//         RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,               
//         SPACE=(80,(20,20),RLSE)         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                         
//*                                         


Pls correct if I m wrong.

Regards,
Priyesh.

I think that individual sites can setup IEBGENER to work either with or without the SYSPRINT and SYSIN DD statements. Here, at this site, it doesn't work without both, but I have also worked at other sites where neither was required.

hy priyesh.agrawal,

then it is really customized differently,
but sysprint is the ibm default,
therefore you must have turned this value...

hi,
let me share something on this matter.actually IEBGENER is a utility job.So normally there is a conventional rule that the JCL shul have the SYSPRINT step also for connecting with the line printer.So still we are following the same rule.But it may not be mandatory for some installations.

please let me know,if i am wrong.You can take this in the same context as we are putting '//' to start a JCl eventhough this was happened at the time of card readers.
