Hello there. I have a slight problem with properly defining COND code checking in my JCL. Can somebody tell me if it's possible at all.

There are 4 steps in JCL. First step executes program which will generate codes 1 thru 7. Depending on code I have to execute steps 2, 3 and 4 in order below:
Code:
RC FROM STEP1      EXECUTE STEPS
----------------------------------------
     1             STEP2               
     2             STEP3               
     3             STEP4               
     4             STEP2 + STEP3       
     5             STEP2 + STEP4       
     6             STEP3 + STEP4       
     7             STEP2 + STEP3 + STEP4


JCL looks like this:
Code:
//*=== FIRST STEP WILL ISSUE RC 1 THRU 7
//*                                     
//STEP1   EXEC PGM=TRIGGER1             
//*                                     
//STEP2   EXEC PGM=PROGR1,COND=???     
//*                                     
//STEP3   EXEC PGM=PROGR2,COND=???     
//*                                     
//STEP4   EXEC PGM=PROGR3,COND=???     
//*                                     


Is it possible at all?

Thanks.

Why do you wish to use COND instead of IF/THEN/ELSE?

Hello,

Can step1 issue a zero return code?

If not, you could use something like:
Code:
//STEP2 EXEC PROGR1,COND=(2,EQ),(3,EQ),(6,EQ))


If the trigger cound issue a zero, add (0,EQ) to the list.

Code the other 2 steps accordingly.
