I have 10 steps in my job STEP1, STEP2 ... STEP10.

I want STEP10 to be executed only when STEP3 or STEP4 or STEP5 or STEP6 or STEP7 abends.

Please let me know how this can be achieved.

Hello,

Do you really mean "abended" or do you mean some undesirable condition code has been set?

If you explain what the "watched" steps (i.e. steps 3, 4, 5, 6. 7) acccomplish and what you want step10 to do when an abend occurs in one of the "watched" steps, we can possibly offer more useful suggestions.

Hi,
assuming you do mean abend then this should work

Code:
//CHECK01  IF (ST03.ABEND = TRUE)                 
//         OR (ST04.ABEND = TRUE)                 
//         OR (ST05.ABEND = TRUE)                 
//         OR (ST06.ABEND = TRUE)                 
//         OR (ST07.ABEND = TRUE) THEN             
//*                                               
//ST10     EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                       
//*                                               
//CHECK01  ENDIF

I too used this only.

Is there any limit to the number of conditions that can be checked in a IF statement.
