Reply with quote

Hi,

We have an output VB file with 96 length for which we had LRECL as 100.
This is the first step of our JCL. The second step takes this as an input and processes. When the whole JCL runs, results are as expected.

But when we tried to run the second step alone by editing the VB file which was created in Step1, we are facing a problem. It is throwing a file status 04 and the step is abending.

We doubt if a VB file can be edited and used for a stand alone run?
Can anyone please throw some light on this?

Nagaraju

Hi Nagaraju,

It would be best for you to provide some details (jcl, msg text, etc.). Show the original run and restart.

That should get you some answers.

as jack said, we need some details, because:

you are wrong. this kind of thing is done often.

there is a profile command or ispf command, PRESERVE something?

i look it up when I need to edit a VB file.

y'all just did something wrong when you edited the file.

what does this mean?

your phrasing leads one to believe that your knowledge is rudimentary.


I'll stop 'flaming', if you post some more info. in addition to the jcl, need to know what kind of program was invoked by the second step.
