Absolutely no chance of knowing with what you have posted.

You really do need to chat with someone from YOUR site who may be of help.

Also, do try and post JCL questions in perhaps the JCL section. Makes sense to me and also saves me from having to move it icon_evil.gif

since the program WTOMSG is probably an in house written utility
ASK YOUR SUPPORT OR YOUR COLLEAGUES

but guessing from experience

Your organization uses some automation package which provides an event scheduling facility based on the messages written to the operator console

so writing a properly formatted message to the operator console will schedule some process

PS.
Do not post screen images, a plain text cut and paste is more than enough

Thanks a lot Enrico-Sorichetti for your quick response.

I thought it is taking some input from the datasets and writing it to console by Executing program WTOMSG.
I am not sure whether utility WTOMSG is doing some automation, never saw that in Mainframe.
I am not a JCL guy but know little about it.

Actually site has done migration from Mainframe to Linux OS few 4-5 years back.
Now they want to decommision the job which uses this logic.

Note that WTOMSG is a proc, not a program...which makes it even more obscure!

Run the job with job statement TYPRUN=SCAN to see the procedure expansion. It will also tell you where the procedure is.
