I can help you achieve this by using the SEARCH button at the top of any page.

This has been discussed and resolved previously.

And DO NOT post in multiple forums. One will suffice. Duplicates deleted !!! icon_evil.gif

If this is TEST and you really want to, use the same Job name for each and submit them all at once (one at a time).

They will queue up and run one after another.

Sure they have the same name, but what do you care about more, the name or the convience?

There is a television show here in the US called Big Bang Theory.

The one character named Sheldon has a very off sense of humor.

Whenever he is not sure about a joke he asks: 'is that sarcasm?'

No, not at all - and surely not for you. My sarcasm, whenever shown, is pretty straight-forward and I keep a very low profile for that per se,on this very Forum.

Actually, wanted to know what OP has to say on this, though, I've used the quote from your post. Hope no harm is done and all is well. And I'm sorry for the confusion. icon_redface.gif

No offense taken what so ever.

I took it as a prediction of what a typical TS might ask.

My story was meant to be funny as well.

It usually goes:

Penny: tells a joke

Sheldon: is that sarcasm?

Penny: No Sheldon!

Sheldon: is THAT sarcasm?

Penny: walks out shaking her head

This has been discussed before and there is anecdotal evidence that this can not be relied upon to execute in the sequence submitted!

Garry.

I agree with Garry on that one.

Also, have you considered using the appropriate tool, your scheduling software to achieve this.
