Hi,

I have 5 jobs in the scheduler. All these jobs are in succeeding order in the schedule. But I have set up the jobs such that if the output file from first job is empty , then I should not run the remaining 4 jobs.

Can I do it by JCL or is there any other way. Please provide some solution.

thanks,

I thought you have already scheduled the jobs?

If you're asking if you can make it so that that your 4 other jobs will not submit, by using JCL, the answer is yes, you can. You can create a new step in your jcl (conditional) that will copy the other 4 jobs to INTRDR.

There are plenty of topics that discuss the JES Internal Reader. Search for them and you'll get your answer.

Hi,

I beleive scheduling jobs using JCL would not be a best practice.

To my knowledge the jobs are predefined in the scheduler (Maestro/CA7) and based on the requirements they are triggered. If not scheduled they may be on demand job.

Can you discuss the same with your scheduling team before going for this procedure.

any suggestions superk ?

Thanks,
Diwakar
