Hi Vin,

U can easly find that the program is in infinate loop r not, through spool...

In the spool, columns like job name, job id,......cfs, efs,.....


when ever u submit the job, go to the spool, and see the values are changing at the field EFS, if the values are changing, program is exceuting..if not program in infinate loop......

i think it may help you....

if i am worng please correct me...

Regards,
Vijay

Hi,

I wonder if a welwritten program can go in an infinite loop because of data problem.

Still, you can look at the spool to find this out.
You can optionally include some display statements and check it.
you can use expeditor as well.
