I don't know.

However, I imagine it would be a useless piece of software if it didn't allow you to do this.

Hi dilip_bangalore


You also could see your whole batch-sequence using OPC-Graph.

You can find the PREDECESSORS AND SUCCESSORS by selecting the job and then selecting option 4 DEPENDENCIES . The TYPE column in the resultant screen signifies whether the DEPENDENT job is a predecessor or a successor.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Please do not post "screenshots" as they waste space and add clutter.

To show the content of a screen/panel, copy/paste the screen content to the Reply Editor - then highlight the pasted info and click the "Code" tag. This is also how to post JCL, Program Code, and data.

Your info will appear quite similar to the original. It will be properly aligned with NO editing for spaces. When you have created your message, click the "Preview" function to see your post as it will appear to the forum. When the appearance is as you want, Submit.

That's true if the successor is in the current plan, but it maybe that the successor job is not scheduled that day. I'm guessing the OP would like to check on all successors of a job, regardless of when they're scheduled.

As others have suggested, 3rd party add-ons like TWS/Graph are the easiest way of doing this. TWS has no obvious way of vewing successor definitions in the database in the same way that some other schedulers, such as CA7 do.

For internal successors you're limited to looking through the application description to try and spot what you're after, or, of course, if that application is in the CP you can check for successors there, confident in the knowledge that there are no internal successors that wont be scheduled.

For external successors, the only way is to produce the "External Dependency XREF Report" (option 1.4.4.7) and search through that to find what you want. It's not especially user friendly, but the information is there. Alternativeky you could write a Rexx to read through and extract the data you require in an easier to use format.

Hope that helps.
