Hi,

You can make use of JEM command to check the errors if any.


Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi:

JEM to be used from the command line???

Let me try?

I tried this command from command line but the message I got is
COMMAND JEM NOT FOUND
***
But the !jck is working fine.

If you explore more commands/ways to check JCL, plz do not forget to share with me.

Also the hi JCl, hi COBOL commands are not working ?
How can I highlight the JCL???

Hi,

1) JEM command is not working means that your shop doesn't support this feature.

2)In the command prompt type PROFILE. It will show all the details. Choose HIGHLIGHT ON.

This should work.


Let me know in case of any concerns.

Hi:

I tried different ways to find it out.
For checking the syntax we can use


1. JEM (Not working in my installation)
2. !jj
3. Prep (Not working in my installation)
4. ejck
5. !jck

There is one tool called ?JCLPLUS?, which also checks the syntax of a JCL..

Try to explore more

Hi ,


I tried the PROFILE In the command prompt . That says invalid option.

There is no question of HIGHLIGHT ON/OFF.

Any other way to know????
