Looks like you are trying to reinvent a scheduling system.

You might try using the TSO "STATUS" command. Given a jobname without a job
number it will list the status [input, executing, and finished] of all jobs
with that name. The jobnumber is listed with each job reported on. I have
done this with something like:


Then you would parse the output in STATUS.L. to see the status of each job
running. Using a loop to repeatedly retrieve the status of your jobs will
tell you when to release the next job.

Another solution would be to submit all your jobs under the same class and
same jobname and JES will release them as they complete. If you use the
TYRUN=HOLD jobcard option you could release them manually or something akin
to the above message.

Still yet another rather impractical solution would be to add a step at the
end of each job to submit the next job:

Placing a COND= on the step card would conditionally submit the next job
based on the return code.

Just geussing at what you are trying to do.

All good points. I figured they probably werent practical. I never
understood why sites don't have a test sheduling system set up. On my last
account they had one set up, but were not allowed to change it. Thus several
layers of administration were between myself and the changing of the
schedule. Fortunately there was a corporate reorganization the week before I
had to do my testing. And once again I missed the all-nighter and the

Just thought my suggestions might help.
