Hi Anu,

what exactly you are expecting? If a JOB would be triggered by Scheduler or in some other way Monthly, it will be a monthly JOB. Same is true for weekly JOB also. Post your requirement clearly.

I need both the cases.

Does anyone have any example (some code), specifying the same ?

I need a JOB/JCL for it.

Thanks !

Hello,

As has been mentioned, you need to explain your requirement.

Is there some reason this is not simply done by the scheduler?

Why can't you look at one or more of your own site's weekly/monthly jobs to find whatever it is you're looking for?

Many times the only difference between a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual job is a parameter and the DSN's of the files.

Does anyone have any example

you could sample JCL with 1 step IEFBR14.
And define this as Weekly or Monthly in scheduler and run the job.

Anu,

You need to clearly state your requirements, Is your shop using any scheduler (CA7/CA11) ?

If your shop is using CA7, then LJOB command in CA7 will do the trick for you. It will get the information only for single job.

If you need to find entire list, you can make use of Savers/Bundle ( these are all shop specific tools) to get the list of jobs with run times.

You can also submit a job to retrieve this information from CA7 by giving high level qualifier. I beleieve any project will follow a naming convention, you can make of this convention in listing your jobs.

Hope i answered your question. If you still have doubts post your queries.

Ram

Please avoid posting your personel/business mail ids in the forum.

Cheers,
Diwakar

Hi,

Apart from scheduler, you can do by using Control Cards also. You have to assign 'M' or 'W' or 'D' to that particular filed to run as Monthly or Weekly or Daily jobs repspectively.

But please note that u need to code in JCL to accept Control card.
