Hi All,

I am looking for logic where SYSAFF value can be read from the flat file and assigned to job , instead of hardcording in JCL.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Regards,
Shanth

From the JCL Reference manual on SYSAFF:
Quote:
Note: Use the SYSAFF parameter to ensure the conversion and execution of the job will be done on a specific system. If you code SYSAFF, both processes are done on the specified system.
Since conversion/interpretation occurs in JES before any execution can start, the ONLY way what you want to do would work is if you create and submit via the internal reader a separate job with the SYSAFF on that job.

Another way is to look at SCHENV (schedule environments), on the jobcard which can force the job onto a particular LPAR, or possibly your scheduler can insert s SYSAFF (e.g. a CA& JCL include)
