Hi All,

I never done this before and couldn't get much info on web/this group as well . Hence posting this question

I am trying to submit a jcl thru FTINCL but the file is sequential and allocating dynamically depending on the user ..It gets create with the RACFID of the user as HLQ and then I am writing the jcl to it, .. when I am issuing FTOPEN or FTINCL command then I am getting below error.

I don't find any useful doc which will tell me about FTOPEN and FTINCL whether I can use these services for a sequential file or not .. I am passing few parameters to the file before submit it but its not done as well.

Can some one please help me on below points

1- Can I use File Tailoring services for sequential data set
2- Can I submit the job which is written in Sequential data set using file tailoring

Below is the trace of the commands.. Please help

Code:
683 *-*                       
                                                               
684 *-*  if P = 01                                             
    >>>    "1"                                                 
                                                               
    *-*   then                                                 
    *-*   do                                                   
                                                               
685 *-*    O = outtrap('OUT.','*')                             
    >>>      "OUT."                                           
                                                               
686 *-*    Address ISPEXEC                                     
                                                               
687 *-*    /*  "LIBDEF ISPSLIB DATASET ID('"jcl_file"')" */   
688 *-*    "FTOPEN TEMP"                                       
    >>>      "FTOPEN TEMP"                                     
    +++ RC(8) +++                                             
                                                               
689 *-*    "FTINCL "jcl_file""                                 
    >>>      "FTINCL AAAAA.JREPORT.JCLTO.SUBMIT"             
    +++ RC(20) +++           



Many Thanks in Advance

  1. The return code 8 from FTOPEN indicates that file tailoring is already in progress.
  2. The parameter to FTINCL should be the name of the skeleton from ISPSLIB.
  3. There's a perfectly good ISPF Services manual linked to from this site. Read it.

Is the JCL that you create actually an ISPF skeleton? If it is not a skeleton, you can skip the file tailoring and just submit the file.

If you are using file tailoring, you need to make sure you allocate a PDS and create a member within the PDS.
