What is the use of the COND statement? Suggest you read the JCL manual. It starts off with a large paragraph on its purpose.

You have to read it carefully because the logic is a bit twisted - if a condition is met then the step is NOT executed (I think!!)
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I'd suggest that you stay away from using COND completely and use the much nicer IF/THEN/ELSE logic. Anyway, you can read all about COND here.
