Hi Rick,

There is a tool called JCL PREP. Check if your shop has it. Once this is installed,before submitting any JCL if you give PREP on the command line it will show all the existing errors. If there are no errors you will get JCLPREP CC 0.Then you can submit.

yeah it is much similar, what it does, is when u type jem in the command prompt before submitting the same, it will check for all the syntax with the available resources/ existing files, and give away the related result. This saves much of the time n money, in case u have this installed.

you can check for JCL Syntax Errors by writing EJCK NOLIST or !JCK on the command line.It displays the error.

Hi,
Try giving !JCK in the command line after opening the JCL. JCK stands for JCL Check..
It will expand the parameters. And show the errors.. and return code also..

This seems to be a tool from CA. Some clients may not have this tool. There is a tool that came in IBM Developerwroks recently. This is written in REXX. Validate your JCL with valJCL: http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/eserver/articles/valjcl.html

Regards,
Sarma.

if u give JEM on the command line,u will get the jcl errors
or u can use "JSCAN" if it is installed ,this is a utility,but it expands all the catalouged precedures as well as assigns proper values in place of overriding parameters and symbolic parameters .
But IN JEM CATALOUGED procedures are not expanded.
let me know if u have any queries

Hi All,
I was also in similar dilemma of checking the JCL sysntax.

I have fiollowing things with me after the search in diff websites.
Here are couple of options to check the syntax. All are installation Dependent. And the !jck is used frequntly I guess.

1. JEM
2. !jj
3. Prep
4. ejck
5. !jck

Hi,

One of the options like Jem, JJ, JSCAN, JCLCK etc is available with every shop. So its better to check with team members to find out which option, your shop is currently using.

Generally Jem is common name given to macro for checking JCL syntax.

Hope it helps. !!!!

:-)
Rajesh
