return code of JCL

Postby syamcs » Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:58 pm

hi all,
I have a small doubt, is it possible to capture the return code of a JCl using rexx.

Yes, but why would you need to? JCL has pretty decent return code/abend/execution facilities itself.

It would normally be run as the last step of a job, so it can capture the return-codes of all of the previous steps,
