Hello,

If it were me, i'd tell the interviewer that you can't always get what you want. . .

Did they want the 7th step to execute or did they want the job to terminate before the 7th step was run? One (rather unacceptable) way might be to plant an override DD that is syntactically correct, but will cause a "dataset not found" error when that step is reached icon_evil.gif

Does that mean that you don't want to use the IF/THEN/ELSE/ENDIF construct either?

You can put a null statement after the 7th step, so that the steps from 8 to 10 wont get executed

As deepthi said Null statement after 7th step should work even though its not a clean way of doing it.

As stated by the OP earlier, this is a PROC and not instream JCL. So perhaps one of you guys can supply the answer on how to insert the NULL into the PROC.

Jeez I hate this forum! Once again, without knowing the exact context and role for which this question was asked, there's no real way to know what the expected proper answer is. icon_evil.gif

Hi Sudhir,

I guess you can use IEBEDIT command. This way you can execute first 7 steps out of 10 of a CATALOG PROC.

Thanks

Hi Expat,

I tested this in my last shop and it worked. There I executed just 1 step. I did not test the same recently.
