Hi,
My job is getting JCL error.
Can is use IF ELSE verb to check if job had JCL error and send the respective email.

Like for abend we have:
IF ABEND
of IF RUN (IF previous step went fine) Is it possible to check for JCL error on whole JOb or any specific step.

Regards,
Krunal Bafna

NO,

A JCL error terminates the job immediately with no option of further conditional processing.

Hello,

Properly implemented Production jobs should "never" experience a JCL error. If this ever does happen, the implementation needs to be corrected - NOT dealt with "on the fly".

JCL-error and abend are two different animals so you should not be mixing them.

If you want to check this, checking for the RC from the respective step should do what you are asking for, no?

Hi Anuj,

the problem here is the OP wants to be able to handle a JCL error.

As already mentioned above, there is no way to track this via an IF statement in the JCL.

A scheduling tool can handle this.

Hi Gerry,

Looks like I've totally misunderstood what OP might be looking for. I'll walk slowly now.

Regards,
