Hi,

While scheduling a job if we create a dependency of the job on arrival of a file, how would the system know whether the file has arrived or not?

Please excuse me if it sounds to be a generic question, but its kind of urgent.

Thanks
Nitin

Didn't really understand what you want.
But any scheduler has have facility to trigger job on creation of dataset on the system.

Its all in the TWS manuals.
But because its an urgent matter, you get a generic answer : the system uses exits.

What is the way you are using to receive the file into mainframe.

Check with your support team and they can setup a process to trigger any
particular JCL on different modes of file arrival (XCOM, FTP).

In case you are transferring file within mainframe you can send a trigger job on successful creation of file.

Hope it helps.

Regards,
Nirmal
