I know there are lots of topics discussing this parameter. But I couldnt find an answer to my query.

What happens when the TIME parameter on a step is greater than that specified in JOB statement. Will there be a run time error or the one specifed in the JOB statement will be used.

If there is any other post that answers this query, please let me know the link.

For a JOB statement TIME parameter other than TIME=NOLIMIT or TIME=1440, the system sets the time limit for each step to one of the following:


The step time limit specified on the EXEC statement TIME parameter or the job time remaining after execution of previous job steps, whichever is smaller.


As per the explanation in the manual, I believe I can safely assume the value in JOB statement will be used, since it is the smaller one and there will be no error.

Hello,

I'm not sure what concern there is about some "error", but the job will abend if the TIME is exceeded. . .
