we use z/OS Version 1 Release 13 in our shop, we issued JOBRC=stepname Parameter in JOB statement to give RC= 0 and typed "JEM" to check any syntax error in jcl.

It was giving "JOBRC is not a valid job statement" icon_rolleyes.gif .

However i neglected the syntax error and submitted the job. Job ran as expected with RC=0. icon_biggrin.gif

here my question is why syntax error came up ?

Probably at least your shop's JCL checker has not been updated to reflect the changes to z/OS 1.13 JCL.

Definitely. JES and the system utilities that you use are always "up-to-date". JCL-checkers never seem to be. TYPRUN=SCAN or toss it in with a known error. Forget the JCL-checker altogether, you'll spend time either chasing your tail or ignoring actual problems, so why bother?

I have grown to like the JCL checker in our shop because it also reports on data sets that do not exist, security violations that I might commit, and whether or not the job will fail on s806 because I have the wrong STEPLIB. Very valuable information. I can forgive it some synax lapses. icon_smile.gif

Our checker (JEM) has a set up file that will allow you to customize it a bit. I can make it accept certain conditions that aren't really problems.

For instance, it still likes to complain about the biggest block size not being first.
