Let's say, I expect a file between 2:00a.m. and 4:00a.m. from external system. If the file didn't reach after 4:00a.m., then without manual interruption the job should be CANCELLED or FORCE COMPLETED. Is there any way in CA7 Scheduler?

If you are using a data set trigger, the job will not enter the system until the data set is out there. I do not know if a time constraint can also be placed on the job -- but the vendor will know. And if your site is licensed for CA-7, you can contact the vendor for assistance with this issue. The answer you get from CA will be much more accurate than any answer you get on this forum.

Hello,

One way to accomplish this is the use a GDG for this file. There would be an initial generation cataloged that has zero records, but the proper block size.

When the file arrives, it becomes the +1 generation. When the job is run the entire GDG is read (and deleted) and a new initial generation is cataloged.

The first bit of code can detect if there are any records and continue (or not) accordingly.
