Hi All,

My requirement is : I have a job which generate one report sometime it doesn't generate basis on business logic , I want to capture the detail from this report and ftp it to some other system if report is getting generated i need to check this logic as well.

so current the report is like below se i am looking for XCPT report which is directed to spool sysout=*. IF this report is getting generated and it has data , i have to run my FTP step and send this report data to other system.

Note: Currently i am not bother about how i will FTP

Code:


17 //SYSEXEC  DD DSN=*,DISP=SHR   
18 //SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                           
19 //POSTEXEC DD SYSOUT=*                           
20 //XCPTRPT  DD SYSOUT=*                           
21 //EMERRPT  DD SYSOUT=* 


Any help or suggestion here is appreciated .

Write the report to a dataset, then have a SORT/ICETOOL step to set a condcode depending on the dataset being empty or not, then have a final FTP step running based on the condcode from the ICETOOL step.

I forgot to mention this : This JOB is being called from rexx and i dnt want to modify rexx program.

I had this approach in my mind but anyother than this by any chance we can think of.

You could write REXX to interface with SDSF and, if the ddname you want is present in the output, extract the data and write to a dataset that you can then FTP.

There is no way to CALL any job (e.g. JCL) from REXX, or from anywhere else. The JCL can be only SUBMITTED (for a batch run, or execution).

After any job has been submitted, and is running, then it doesn't matter: where it was submitted from?

All said above has not a minor relation to the original issue: how to get the result of one JCL step, to be used in any of subsequent steps?

If you really want to make it complicated then do as Gerry suggest, write a REXX which uses the REXX/SDSF API to monitor job status and extract data. The REXX could be a separate process, or a subroutine in the original.
In my previous post I forgot to mention that you probably also would want a step to print the report? IEBGENER would be the simplest program here.
