What did you find when you looked in the manual (link at the top of the page)?
Also, when you say it didn't work, do you mean:
1) the job ran to normal completion but didn't produce the results you expected?
2) the job ran but gave a user abend (Uxxxx) code?
3) the job ran but gave a system abend (Sxxx) code?
4) the job failed converter / interpreter and never started at all?
These are all legitimate, valid, and possible interpretations of "didn't work". If you cannot be precise in your terminology, which is so central and important to IT, you really should reconsider your career choice.

Attempts to override TIME parameters can be overridden by the people who support z/OS (MVS) at your site. Have you checked with them to make sure what you want to do is allowed (acceptable)? Many shops frown on overriding TIME values.
