i am running a job. it seems it went into infinite loop and i am not able to cancel or purge the job. is there anyway that i can cancel the job instead of calling operator.

First off, to set the record straight, a job cannot be in a loop. A looping situation is caused by a program within the jobstream.
Now, to cancel a job, if you have MVS console authority, you can enter the JES2 cancel command "$C 'jobname'. The entire list of JES2 commands arew documented here:
If the problem was sever enough that the cancel command does not work, then an MVS FORCE command might be necessary:
CANCEL jobname, documented here:
If you don't have console authority, you can usually still cancel your own jobs from within your JES Spool access facility (SDSF, IOF, Sysview, etc.). A cancel command would typically be a "C" (cancel), "K" (kill), or "I" (interrupt). Consult the appropriate documentation for your product.

no we cannot cancel a job. that is the work of the system admin to cancel the job once submitted. but we can purge the job after submitting if that works.[/code][/b]
