Hi,

In my JCL, there are many steps which formats many input files to create output files. If any one of the input files is not catalogued, I want to avoid that particular step. Can someone help me how to proceed ?

Note: The input file is not created in this job.

Thanks,
Yugaswaroopini

Try doing a LISTCAT for yourself on a file that exists and one that doesn't.

As per your previous post(s) - please learn to search the forum before posting as this has been discussed to death and back before.
