Did you read MVS JCL Reference book present in Kevin post. Its very clear.
More specific to that read /*JOBPARM Statement . This will surely give you clear understanding.

wrong reply icon_wink.gif the statement was
Code:
// JOBPRM='SZ0030J1',


which makes it a parameter specification for some local procedure
bad naming choice anyway,
it made the gentleman post the wrong question to the wrong people
or maybe he did not care to read and understand the jcl involved

the people to ask are his peers or his support

I agree with Enrico "JOBPRM" is cnofusing. At one of the shops I worked - we used to call that as "parameterization" - as Enrico says it's "parameter specification".

Though the choice of this variable name is such that it sounds like "Job Parm" but "/*JOBPARM", for which this thread is, altogther is a different animal. These two thigns are different -- one is "job-related parameter for JES2" and other is user define variable-name.
