I am using the below code now.

Code:
//STEP010  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                             
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                                         
  PRINT IDS('AAA.BBB') COUNT(1)         
  IF LASTCC=12 THEN SET MAXCC=4                                         
/*                                                                     
//*                                                       
// IF (STEP010.RC=0) THEN
//STEP020 EXEC PGM=PGM1
// ELSE
//STEP030 EXEC PGM=PGM2
// ENDIF
             


Even the file is empty, STEP020 is executing. It shouldnt execute as per the IF condition. STEP020 is executing and abends with file not located.
can anyone pls help why is it executing astep020 even if file in step010 doesnt exist.

Are the first step returning non-zero return code?

Please post the log of your job for anyone to look and help you.

In step20, I want to use the file that I checked whether it is present or not.
Hence it has given me the error (file not foud) before going into the execution.

My reqmt is to check file 1whether a file is present or not.
If present, process file1 as input and create 2 output files
If not present, write "file not present' in file1.

I am using the non existing file in the second step. Hence it puts me in syntax error in the job that the file is not available. Job not executed.
How should I handle such case.

The job didnt executed. If I run with other existing files, condition code is returning 4 for empty files. I verified. Problem with my code is that iam using the non-exsting file in the second step which results in "file not found error " job not executed.

Code:
//STEP010  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                             
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                                         
  PRINT IDS('AAA.BBB') COUNT(1)         
  IF LASTCC=12 THEN SET MAXCC=4                                         
/*                                                                     
//*                                                       
// IF (STEP010.RC=0) THEN
//STEP020 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTIN  DD DSN=AAA.BBB  --> it says file not available, job not executed
// ELSE
//STEP030 EXEC PGM=PGM2
// ENDIF

If you are running JES3 at your site, the entire job has data set verification done before the job starts running. JES2 does data set verification before each step -- one of the differences in the two. This means that under JES3, unlike JES2, the JCL you have will never work. You can split it into 2 steps, or find another approach, but the approach you are using will not work.
