Hi Subash,

You can't code more than 255 steps in one job.

If u have more than 255 steps then u can go for new job in same member.

does it answered your query?

thanks,
shannu.

Hi subhash,

you can't code more than 255 steps in a single job, which includes the procedure's step as well, and if you want it to acheive the same, like shannu told you have to do it as seperate jobs in a member.

I guess there is no other go.
