it can be solved by using the following two methods : -
1. in step card u have to mention the dprty=(val1,val2)
priority=16*val1 +val2 according to result value step will be executed higher number higher priority
2. By using IEBEDIT u have to specify the name after sysin dd *
steps (step10 step2.....) in ur prefered manner
during runtime these r executed as mentioned manner

naveen,

show us your jcl with 10 steps.

by the way

QUESTION POSED ON: 20 DEC 2004
QUESTION ANSWERED BY: Mark Zelden I am not sure what you want to accomplish, but the answer is no. The only way to do something like that would be to wrap a program around the JCL (SAS, REXX, COBOL, etc.) and submit the JCL to the INTRDR.
DPRTY is a very old JCL keyword that was basically ignored anyway depending on the settings in the Installation Control Specification (ICS) in use on the system. The ICS was used prior to WLM Goal Mode (Goal Mode is the only option in z/OS 1.3 and above). However, the DPRTY JCL keyword has been ignored since before OS/390 (I believe DPRTY has been ignored since MVS/ESA SP V5).

oops,

Question and Zelden response in full was actually:

Expert Knowledgebase - Sponsored by IBM

Is it possible to execute JCL steps randomly (of our own choice) by using IEBEDIT utility. I heard coding DPRTY in the STEP will serve this purpose. I think DPRTY coded on the step level is just ignored.
