Hello,

Is there any means to schedule a job to run at a particular time, somekind of parameter that could be added to the JCL which would trigger the job at that instance otherthan using schedulers like OPC, CA7??

Thanks.

There's nothing in JCL. However, there are JES2 automatic commands that could be run off a timer. You could submit the auto command from your job via an IEBEDIT.

The command could look like this:

/*$TA,T=36.00,'$VS,''S JOB,MBR=MYJOB '''

This will submit a job at 12 noon. Caveats:

1) There must be a proc named JOB in the proclib concatenations.
2) The proc also (from my sample) have a substitutinal parameter of JOB. That proc is normally an IEBEDIT job (or any program that can submit a job to the internal reader) and point to the PDS that has a member JOB.
