How can we keep a step in loop which means executing a particular step repeatedly??

Why would you want to do this.

What is your requirement and maybe someone will know a much better and less wasteful way of doing whatever it is that you want to achieve.

Hi !

I can't remember of such a silly requirement. But also, you can't keep a step of a Job in loop. He still ends, when the program or whatever you execute here is terminating.

Hello,

You need to re-think how to implement your requirement (the requirement is not to loop in some step - that is your attempt to meet the requirement). If you post the actual requirement, someone may have a suggestion.

I suspect that you want to loop until some condition is met. This could be hours or worse case - never.

If several people implemented their process doing as you want to do, the mainframe would come to a complete halt because all of the initiators/partitions were "looping".
