All,

How to run a single proc n times in a jcl. it should have only one step.

For example:

//jobname job .........
//step1 exec abc
//

Here, i want to run this ABC proc n times. how can i do that?

Have you thoght of coding the EXEC statement multiple times - once for each time that you want to run it.

Would I be cynical if I mentioned HOMEWORK here ?

Hi,

I can think of one situation where you can make your JCL/PROC dataset-triggered. n-times datasets comes in, n-times job has to execute.

Hi,

It may be a practical problem, I can relate it with a typical A[/a]ccount [b]Recievale (AR) system. Where (at submitter end) Submission System is required to XCOM or send every submission to some other System or sub-system to process those file/s.

Still, I can just assume.

gkanthavel, Please let us know the origin of this question, we cant read your mind from here.

Its an interview question. is it possible? i think its possible.

the question is:

you have written a job name is ABC which invokes same proc three times. The proc name is XYZ. the proc has 3 steps. when the job runs, it got abended in step 2 of the first proc. how do you ask the production people to restart the job?

Very nicely icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

That depends on how you have named each proc

//PROC1 EXEC XYZ
//PROC2 EXEC XYZ
//PROC3 EXEC XYZ
Would be an easy restart, but

//PROC EXEC XYZ
//PROC EXEC XYZ
//PROC EXEC XYZ
May be a bit more fun................................
