What is the difference between STARTM and SUBTM in CA7?

Also, my job schedule has below values,
DOTM=1000 LEADTM=0200 SUBTM=0800 STARTM=0800

Am assuming post some theoritical research, the job would be flagged "late" after 2 hours from SUBTM/STARTM, i.e., Deadline time = (DOTM - LEADTM)??? Please correct me if am wrong.

You need to find the CA-7 manuals and read them. If your site is licensed for CA-7, you have access to the manuals -- via hardcopy, via internal web site, or by going to the CA support web site and downloading them.

From the Glossary in the CA-7 Primer manual:
Quote:
start time
. Deadline start time. The time when a
job should start in order for it to be finished by its
due-out time. CA 7 calculates this by subtracting
the job's lead time from its due-out time.
Quote:
submit time
. A requirement that CA 7 not submit
the job until this time is reached.

I tried reading the manuals but they are little unclear, thought someone who has practically worked can help out better!!!

Do you mean, START time and Deadline start time are same?
We have many jobs in our application which have explicitly specified both STARTM and SUBTM (in most cases, the values are same), even DOTM and LEADTM are specified in those same cases as below.

[size=18][color=yellow]DOTM=1000 LEADTM=0200 SUBTM=0800 STARTM=0800 [/size][/color]

How can we explain such cases?

From the example you posted, due out time is 10 AM; lead time is 2 hours so start time is calculated at 8 AM. The submit time indicates that the job is not to start until 8 AM. I'm not sure what you want explained -- the times make perfect sense and are consistent.

Sorry if i confused...

My doubt is for particular cases when LEADTM and DOTM are specified, why do we have to explicitly specify the STARTM...?

Will CA7 validate when we are setting up the schedule whether the entered STARTM is complying with the formula, (DOTM - LEADTM)?

Probably best if you speak to your CA7 people as they are responsible for the setup.

Your question needs to be answered by someone working at your site. Or, you could contact the vendor and get an answer from them.
