There seem to be a lot of these tasks about. Is it a contest?

The usual way to perform this task is to analyze type 30 records in SMF to obtain job return codes, unless there is a second data set containing job return codes that was not specified in the task definition. Unfortunately, Rexx cannot read SMF data, so it does not seem possible to perform this task using Rexx. There is another problem in the task definition: duplicate jobnames.

Hello,

These jobs should be run by the scheduling software for the system.

The scheduling system "knows" these return codes. Suggest you speak with your scheduling people.

Unless this is not a "real" requirement but rather a competition or training exercise.
Hope this helps,

Hi All,

I was able to extract the list of all the JOB's return code is other than MAXCC=0 in a FILE using the SAR Utility.
The issue is there may be some of the JOB's ended with MAXCC=0 in the second run, in this case i need not write the JOBNAME in the file.

Here i need a better way to filter the list of JOB's latest RC.

Please let me know a better idea to know the latest RC of the JOB.

Regards,
Ramsee

Hello,

Whether you continue with your current input or swich to SMF input or use something else, you will still need to determine which are multiple runs and which are a problem run that has been successfully rerun . . .
Hope this helps,

I have seen this occasionally, where there are swarms of the same question from different people. My wild guess is that a mangler learns that some other company is doing something, so they decide to do it too.
