Have you looked in the manual? Index, glossary? Online help?

Have you come across any other "skeletons" in mainframe terminolgy? Search the rexx forum, for instance. Think of what the word means in English, think of some expressions like "putting flesh on the bones" and get your brain going.

Just a clarification. I'm not saying that all "skeletons" are the same in their function. "skeleton" in a different context will have different specifics. But, once you've stumbled over one type of "skeleton" you should be able to understand what a "skeleton" is in general, and realise that the specifics are highly likely to be to do with the specific sort of task at hand.

So, if you have "XYZ Skeleton" it's going to be to do with the function of XYZ. You put the "flesh" on the Skeleton and you have a functioning XYZ. To find the specifics, consult the documentation for XYZ.

If the question can be answered simply by opening a manual or pressing PF1 then it isn't a question for here.

When a job goes 'SKELETON' in CA-7, it cannot find the job member in the dataset it was defined in.

For example,

If the job in CA-7 was defined in 'PROD.CA7.CNTL(PRODJOB1)' and was then renamed (but not updated in CA-7) to 'PROD.CA7.CNTL(PRODJOB2)', CA-7 will still look for the PRODJOB1.
