Hello,

i - Dummy job - - - - does nothing
II - Load job - - - - - puts data into a database, vsam or other file
III - Extract Job - - - retrieves data from a database
iv - Ndm Job - - - - - transfers data from one system to another (similar to the ftp process)
v - Validate job - - - ensures data being put into the system is correct (ensures valid values)
vi - Backup job - - - makes a copy of something to be used if things need to be restored/recovered
vii - Formate job - - maybe format? initializes a file to initial values and/or control info
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hello,

Yes, thee are many, many more types of jobs. . . Far too many to list here. If you learn of something and it is not clear, someone here may be able to clarify.

The details of those and most other types of jobs is completely site-specific. People responsible for those activities for yours or some other system would be the people to ask. Keep in mind that the answer may not be portable to other systems.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

Keep in mind that while your question is completely clear to you, others may not understand what it is you want to learn/know which makes an answer difficult.

If you more clearly explain what you are looking for, someone should be able to provide some info.
Hope this helps,
