Use >> in the editor to make four space available at the beginning of each line. Watch out for any "ERR"s. Change blanks in columns 1 to 4 to "//* ".

And yes, that's not JCL. I assume you either felt some need to represent it like that, or you have something "unusual" which "pre-processes" JCL.

Just to nitpick, there are some JES commands that look exactly like comments. You'll see things like
//*SYSTEM=SY7

As part of a larger line above.

It's the lack of a space that tips you off.

Just bracket, it your dealing with actual steps, the steps with impossible IF..ENDIF statements... :mrgreen:

//   IF RC < 0 THEN
//STEP exec whatever
//STEP exec more
//   ENDIF

And why I always leave a space, so I don't "accidently" concoct something JES thinks I want it to execute :-)

Then possibly show us the "below this" code rather than what you show... :roll:
