I have job as below.
Code:

//LSNBEMT  JOB (54035,2140,00000,1111),'DOESNT EXIST PS',
//     CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=H,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),
//     RESTART=STEP02
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//IFBLK    IF (STEP01.RC = 0) THEN
//*
//STEP02   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//STEP03   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//ENDIFBLK ENDIF

Here i am trying to restart job from STEP02 which is in IF block, but the step was not executed(may be because at the restart time STEP01 Return code may not be available.
Can anyone help me to restart this job from STEP02 by changing jobcard but without changing the job(using COND param) as it is a production job.

small correction:

Below is the jobcard(It should not have any step other than calling proc as per client standards)
Code:

//LSNBEMT  JOB (54035,2140,00000,1111),'DOESNT EXIST PS',
//     CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=H,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),
//     RESTART=PROC.STEP02
//     JCLLIB ORDER=LSNB00.LI.CNTL
//PROC    EXEC IFPROC4


Below is the proc

Code:

//IFPROC4 PROC IFPROC4
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//IFBLK    IF (STEP01.RC = 0) THEN
//*
//STEP02   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//STEP03   EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
  LISTCAT ENTRIES('LSKT00.BLPLAN1.PS.TEST2')
/*
//ENDIFBLK ENDIF

Maybe they are not being executed because STEP01 has issued a RC04, and in this case they are NOT to be processed.

So where is the output from your restart - which is what I wanted to see.

Hi,

lets assume the PROC has no instream data, how do you restart STEP02 without altering the PROC ?

With normal restart, STEP02 & STEP03 just flush

Hi anuj,

Actually I was running as a job in test library. But while moving to production, i have to have jobcard and proc as separate. so i have posted like that. Anyway, thank you for all your suggestions.

Hi,

my question still stands, can a restart be done when IF conditions are in a PROC without modyfying the PROC and actually executing the restarted step ?

//IFBLK IF (STEP01.RC = 0) | (¬STEP01.RUN)


Try with also.

Hi,

maybe I'm missing something here, how do you override the PROC or are you suggesting to put //IFBLK IF (STEP01.RC = 0) | (¬STEP01.RUN)
permanetly in the PROC ?

Hi Rajesh,

let's start from scratch, hereunder is a PROC
Code:
//A       PROC                                                         
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//*                                                                     
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//*                                                                     
//CHECK01  IF (STEP01.RC = 0) THEN                                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP02   EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                                           
//*                                                                     
//CHECK01  ENDIF                                                       
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//CHECK02  IF (STEP02.RC = 0) THEN                                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP03   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//CHECK02  ENDIF                                                       
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//CHECK03  IF (STEP03.RC = 0) THEN                                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP0004 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//CHECK03  ENDIF                                                       
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************




Now are you saying I should set it up this way to enable restarts not to flush
Code:
//A       PROC                                                         
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//*                                                                     
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//*                                                                     
//CHECK01  IF (STEP01.RC = 0) | (¬STEP01.RUN) THEN                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP02   EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                                           
//*                                                                     
//CHECK01  ENDIF                                                       
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//CHECK02  IF (STEP02.RC = 0) | (¬STEP02.RUN) THEN                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP03   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//CHECK02  ENDIF                                                       
//*                                                                     
//**********************************************************************
//CHECK03  IF (STEP03.RC = 0) | (¬STEP03.RUN) THEN                     
//*                                                                     
//STEP0004 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                                             
//*                                                                     
//CHECK03  ENDIF                                                       
//*

Hi Rajesh,

well I'm afraid this is not a good option, what happens when STEP02 is restarted and fails, STEP03 flushes but STEP04 will now run.

Don't like this idea at all.

So back to my original question, can you override IF conditions in a PROC withou changing the PROC ?

Looks like that old peach of an argument - do I use IF/THEN/ELSE or COND= for ease of functionality ..........
