Yes, right.

but there should be some difference in coding JCL to run a cobol code and a focus code.

Is there any standard that we should always follow whenever we write JCL to run a focus code?

Hello,

If you are starting from scratch, suggest you have someone provide you with a few simple FOCUS processes (and the jcl to execute these if they are run in batch - FOCUS runs online as well as batch) and use those processes as study material.

Take these and read the documentation to learn specifics.

If you organization is licensed to use the product, all of the material may be downloaded free from Information Builders support.
