Well, Its interesting.

If you have coded everyting correctly, then it should work. isn't it?
I am sorry but there may be very trivial reasons like

1. Is mainframe running?
2. Is your job being submitted?
3. Is your cobol program compiled?
4. Are you submitting the same job with same program in the step correctly?

Would like to know what can go wrong if the code is correct still it doesn't work.
