Hi frnd,
JSCAN is not a tool.. withouth submitting the job v can have a syntax check up.. so it's an TSO Command. u can type it and view the errors if any without submitting the job.

JSCAN is used to check the syntax of a JCL without running it.

Its same as JEM.JEM will be in Edit/view Mode and JSCAN will be in Browse,Using JEM or JSCAN,you can have the PROCS expanded as long as the Procedure libraries are defined in the JOB/SCAN PARMLIB library.

JEM is one of a few Edit Macros that are part of JOB/SCAN. Besides using it for JCL Validation, you can also enforce site specific JCL standards. There are other Edit Macros available for JCL reformatting/alignment, and for making JCL Changes.

hope this helps.

Hi gopal

JEM/JSCAN are similar to tools, then are not default
& they will not be present in every system,it depends on the system we are using..but we defenitly use one of them JEM/JSCAN there also VER or VES which does the same as that of jem.jscan



Cheers..Prasad

Hi,

In my earlier shop I have used JCK, but it is not available in new shop.
I have never user used JSCAN or JEM for JCL checking. Could you please provide me the required information to use JSCAN or JEM.

Is JCLPREP is a similar tool? Please provide information for the same if anyone has used.

In addition to this most of you must be aware that we can submit a JCL with parameter TYPERUN=SCAN.

You all are requested to make this topic a complete in it self with all you knowledge.
