Hi, one of the step in my proc is completing with return code 4. This proc is called in one job. The job has last step as -

// IF RC > 1 THEN
//PROC99 EXEC abend routine
// ENDIF

And because of which my job is finally abending.

Any idea how to override the return code of that step in the proc itself. So that I do not need to modify the job at all.

I tried giving -
IF STEP010.RC=04 THEN
SET LASTCC=01
ENDIF

but that did not help. I tried MAXCC / LASTCC / STEP.RC but none of that worked.

And how are you planning to deploy proc in production ? Either one needs to be changed and the correct place is JCL. You don’t need that IF conditions at all and update the max rc in scheduling to 4 for this job and you are done.

With this level of understanding of JCL concepts you are welcome to the Beginners Forum!

The quoted code is (highly likely?) a mixture of keywords used in JCL, and completely different keywords used inside of system utility IDCAMS; both given with syntax errors. Is seems to be impossible at the Expert Forum to have no idea about the difference between them.

This cannot be done -- step condition codes are set by the program executing in the step, and once set they cannot be changed. Your BEST solution would be to change the job to
Code:
IF RC > 4 THEN
