Reply with quote

thanks a lot Friends.

Is there any way i can make "WAIT" in REXX dynamic ?

(i.e) I have to scan a job for its completion in SDSF and once completed i need to trigger another job.

I can add the trigger statement at the end of the first job, but i will not be able to edit the JCL's.

Let me know your views.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh

I have lost count of the number of times someone wants to keep a terminal locked up until a batch job completes. Every time this topic rears its ugly head everyone screams DON'T DO IT

Please search the forum for yourself if you really do feel that this is the best option icon_evil.gif icon_evil.gif icon_evil.gif

What does that tell us? I don't understand.

Suggest you use the scheduling software already in use on the system - that is why it was purchased. . .

If for some "reason" you cannot schedule this properly, you might just add a step to submit the next job thru the internal reader when the first job completes.

Also, when you have a questoin, you should start a new topic for your question rather than posting a reply to some unrelated topic.

Can you use the TSO/E STATUS command, or does your solution HAVE to take advantage of the facilities within SDSF?

okie Dick scherrer.

I will make sure i start a new thread if its a new topic.

Since it was part of my purge program i have included in the same thread.

Expat, i do not want to hold the terminal, is there any way i can keep this process in background?

Is background process is possible through REXX?

2 ways could be to schedule this using the scheduling software on the system or to have the first job submit the second job via the internal reader.
