Getting the JES number as a job is running

Postby hjyoungii » Wed Aug 13, 2008 6:30 pm

Is there a way to get the JES number during the time a job is running?

We have a project where we need to include in the file the JES number. Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Should be IGYCRCTL, the COBOL compiler.

We are using Z/OS. I will have to see what the Cobol compiler is now called in that.

I appreciate your assistance. I took the Cobol part out of the JCL and compiled it. I then created the JCL to call the program and got exactly what we needed.

Is JES number considered to be the same thing as job number?

Maybe this would have been easier:
//STEP0001 EXEC PGM=EZACFSM1
//SYSIN    DD   *
STATUS (&JOBNAME)
/*
//SYSOUT   DD   DSN=&&T1,DISP=(,PASS),UNIT=VIO
//*
//STEP0002 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01
//SYSTSPRT DD   SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSIN  DD   DSN=&&T1,DISP=(OLD,DELETE)

Hello,

Is JES number considered to be the same thing as job number?
Yes.

I've not yet tried this, but i would rather call the new module from within the code that needs the jes# and not add 2 more steps to the job.

Maybe someone will try the call and post back - i will also try later or over the weekend.
Hope this helps,

Hello again,

Yup, the COB2JOB module can be called from some other cobol program.

Just modify the linkage section to receive the system info.
Hope this helps,

Quite a few programs call the JES number the Job number. So yes. - I am guilty of it too. I work at a company now that calls things as they are.
