instead of blindly cloning somebody' s else code snippet
why not start reading Yourself the jcl manuals to find out the proper format/syntax for inline substitution symbols ???

again... ASK YOUR SUPPORT to check if the approach is accepted.
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

As said I'm an amateur. I think my post says that pretty clearly.... but as stated, this is for testing purposes ONLY. There are very few rules imposed on testing. We have UNIT (no rules), INTEGRATION (still pretty much whatever, but there is structure), ACCEPTANCE (highly structured, has limitations on access), and then there is PRODUCTION.

This process is ONLY for setting testing dates/ testing JCL date overrides. So it really doesn't need to be audited by anyone but my boss. And he will do that before I move it to IT and again before UAT.

You're right I should read the manuals.... but A) I don't have one B) I didn't know that the term I was after was 'Instream'... so I would have been reading for a looooonnnggggg time.

Anyway, thanks for the help. I learned quite a bit today.

Never just say "it's not working"

Tell us what is happening now.
