Hi

Can some one please clarify me on this?

I have three jobs.... J1, J2, J3
Is it possible to schedule these jobs on TWS such that .........

If RC of J1 is 0 then J2 should be triggered
If RC of J1 is 4 then J3 should be triggered
If RC of J1 is 8 then batch should stop.

Actually we are in design phase of a project, and my design needs such scheduling logic. Please let me know if such scheduling is possible and is an acceptable approach?

Thanks

yes such scheduling is possible,
but you may want to get with your ops people
to insure that they know how to implement.

If it is documented - in such a way that one can understand -
IMUO - yes.

A tool is a tool. you have programs, return codes, schedulers. use them.

but unfortunately this is site specific; depends on the standards.

others members of the forum will contribute based on their experience.
