Exec statement in jcl

Postby kranthi.kumarmca22 » Thu Jan 07, 2010 10:15 pm

Hi ALL,
I am fresher to mainframes.
I have a doubt.
If we are doing multiple jobs in jcl, is it required to write two exec statements in the jcl

Proper terminology:
If you are doing multiple STEPs in one JOB then you have an EXEC stmnt for each step.

You can use only one JOB in 1 JCL .
To execute several steps we can use several exec statements in the JOB.
MAx 255 EXECS

Sorry !!! I beg Your Pardon You Can code Multiple JOBS in a single JCL .
For Each Job you can have 255 Steps max.
If you have two steps write Two EXEC's.

Hi Saumitra,
Could you please tell how do we code multiple jobs in a single JCL?
I was aware of the fact that we can have only one job card per JCL.

Thanks,
Venkateswari

What does "single JCL" mean? If you are referring to a sequential file or a member of a PDS, you may have any number of jobs in that file. When they are submitted, each job is treated independently by JES and assigned its own job number and run separately. If you are referring to something else, you will have to explain what you mean.

As far as JES is concerned, a job that is being input starts when a JOB statement is found and continues until any of several conditions are met.

No i mean to say in a single PS file we can have multiple job cards..
@ Venki
Please try executing two JOB cards in a single flat file.it works perfectly fine ..
