Hi,

Thank you.

TIME=1440 tells the system to let the job / task / step run as long as it can. Removing the parameter may cause the job to ABEND for lack of CPU time; the exact amount of time allowed depends upon the way your system is set up.

You mean there is no benefit of removing it.

Plenty of benefit. Suppose your program is looping - you want it terminate as soon as possible.

You claim to be a software engineer, do you have to be a "manual" engineer to actually RTFM or a "web" engineer to STFW?

You need to ask yourself , why do you want to do that or why was it there in the first place?
