Hi,

Could you pls let me know where I can download the source code for VALJCL REXX tool to check JCL syntax. My shop has no tools to perform JCL syntax check.

I came across the VALJCL tool on http://ibmmainframes.com/post-3891.html
Also googling gives many IBM.com links to this tool, but all the pages have been moved.

If anyone still has the tool, cud u pls share it. It will be of immense help.

Thanks.

Anuj,
Thanks for trying, seems like IBM released it some years back and they reverted back the product icon_eek.gif .

Hello,

Specifying TYPRUN=SCAN will catch many (but not all) jcl errors. . .

Possibly better than nothing.

To get a complete check, instead of using typrun=scan, add a

//JCL ERROR
statement after the JOB statement. When submitted it will generate:
Code:
STMT NO. MESSAGE                                 
       2 IEFC605I UNIDENTIFIED OPERATION FIELD

and any other errors will be displayed.

Hi D,
I am aware of TYPRUN=SCAN but was in need of a better way to do it. So went looking for VALJCL.
