Hi There,

You can use IEBEDIT for this.

Code:
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=IEBEDIT                       
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=dsn name that contain jcl,DISP=SHR 
//SYSUT2   DD SYSOUT=(*,INTRDR)                   
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSIN    DD *                                   
  EDIT TYPE=INCLUDE,STEPNAME=(STEP3,STEP4,STEP5)         
/*

hello,

U can code the COND parameter in the first two steps to avoid it from running.

U can type COND=ONLY in the first two steps.. Then those steps won't run

Hello,

Is this to use in a "real" business situation or is it a training/interview question?

This same question seems to come up very often.

I have a hard time believing that there are so many sites that need jobs restarted without using the RESTART provided just for that purpose icon_confused.gif
