I have 5 connect-direct steps in a JCL to send out 5 files. I have a requirement to send out each file with 15-min gap. Is it possible to do it in one JCL? The only solution I can think of is to create 5 JCLs for each file transfer and schedule them after every 15 mins. Can someone be able to help me do it in one JCL only?

Thanks

Hello,

Using the scheduling software is a far more professional approach.

You do not want to implement "mini-scheduling" within the job. . .

You could probably kludge something together, but as I learned at Aflac, the scheduler and the scheduling guys are your friends...grin....

Thanks for your responses. You're probably right about that. Will do the solution I can only think of which you also think is the better solution. Thanks!

Hello,

Just curious, but why does someone believe there should be this 15 minute delay between transmissions?

What business or technical requirement calls for this?
