hi all,
Plz help me with these questions.

1) If i write Typerun=Hold in jcl, then when and how the operator/I will again set the job to execute.
Plz try to give an example.

1) You release the job whenever you need it to run. I do that using the A command in the action column of one of the SDSF screens.

2) It depends on which JES system installed in your machine.

3) You can loop steps within JCL, usually using some programming language/script. You can see examples if you use the SEARCH facility of this forum.

4) The USER parameter is weel documented in the fine manual.

5) The is no WSPC parameter in the JCL language, However -it is an accepted parameter for the DB2 COBOL precompiler.

6) The PERFORM parameter is well documented in the fine manual, either as part of the EXEC statement, or as part of the JOB statement.

O.
