Why don't you try the part of the forum that deals with Control-M? This is the JCL part - Job Control Language.

Hello,

Many of the Control-M topics are in the "Other Mainframe Topics" part of the forum, so i'll move this topic to that part of the forum.

Unfortunately, there are Control-M topics in several other parts of the forum as well. . .

Hello,

When you read the manual, if you find something that is not clear, post what you found and your doubt. Someone will be able to clarify.

In a nutshell, it's a condition that comes from a a prior job in the schedule that will not always run.

Good example:
You have a job, Z, which backs up a database. You want to run it only after all of the jobs that update said database have finished.

Your Monday-Thursday schedule has three jobs, A, B, and C which update that database. On Friday and only Friday, there is a fourth job, D.

So you set up job Z to have jobs A, B, and C as in-conditions, and to have job D as a Maybe Condition. Control-M will only wait for D if it has been scheduled, otherwise, it will only wait for A, B, and C.

There are a lot of little rules for this, for things like when did job D get placed in the AJF, and if job D is in the right "groups." So be sure to study it all as if you are taking a test. You can also use those built-in utilities to test your schedules without running them.
