Hi,

This may be silly, but I would like to know whether we can use check symbolic paramter values in the place of KEYWORD in an IF THEN ELSE construct in JCL

No.

I mean, you can use a typical symbolic parameter:

Code:

//*
// SET CHECK=EQ
// SET VALIDRC=2
//*
//STEPX EXEC PGM=PGMX
//*
// IF (STEPX.RC &CHECK &VALIDRC) THEN
//STEPY EXEC PGM=PGMY
// ENDIF

Thanks Kevin. Some times I crave for unneccessary things. I will satisfy the requirement using COND code overriding from JCL.
