Reply with quote

Hi all,
there are few questions still unanswered..(JCL's so tiresome, but interesting nonetheless)...

i am strongly in need of answers to following questions.

1. How many work data sets can we specify at most in a step?
2. Can we submit a job from SPOOL area, if yes, how?
3. Without using TYPRUN=SCAN, what are other methods to check syntax errors in a job/procedure.
4. what's the system response for
//dd1 dd disp=(new,catlg),space=(320,(1,2))
//*temdata //*with disp=catlg
//dd2 dd dummy

A. The system will first indicate that NEW,CATLG is invalid for a temporary dataset and will substitute NEW,PASS. Other than that, the system assigns a temporary dataset name to DD1.

i tried giving JEM in the command line but it is not workin with my installation.
(It says command JEM not found).
Please tell me if this method is installation dependant.

Also, I tried typing SJ on the line before the job on the output queue, and I get the message "GSVX156E Invalid line command - SJ".

It should be working fine if u type sj on the line before the job on the output que.I think u r mainframe does not support that.
I think even jem is installation defined.

If I am wrong please correct me.

Superk
you have to issue this command in the SDSF panel. The error message looks like it's from CA-SYSVIEW.

And I think JEM is a tool from diversified software. So your shop should own this in order to use it.
