You'd use the IEBEDIT program. Search the forums for lots of examples.

I think this can work: Use RESTART as you said, and code COND=(0,LE) on the JOB card. I THINK that the 1st step execed in a job is not cond tested.

Give it a shot and let us know.

Code in the JOB CARD like RESTART = STEP 03,COND=(0,LE).
