    Hello, and Happy Tuesday to all.

     

    We interrupt this week’s Tuesday’s Tip to bring you breaking news!  CA 7 support now has a CHAT feature.  When you log in to Support Online to open a case with support, there is a new CHAT button available.  If you just have a question or need clarification on some feature within CA 7, instead of opening a case, you can do a quick CHAT with one of us support representatives.  We are very excited to be able to communicate with you, our cilents, in this quick and easy way—no need to open a case and wait for a call-back or email—instant answers (or at least very quick :-) ).

     

    Now back to our regularly scheduled Tuesday’s Tip:

     

    Last week I promised you a tip on how to get job requirements ‘back in sync’ once they have run out of order.  When a job enters the queue with a job requirement, the LAST-RUN DATE/TIME is checked to see if the job that is the requirement as run since the job with the requirement last ran.  You can see the dates and times that are compared by doing an LJOB command and checking the LAST-RUN DATE/TIME:

     

    LJOB,JOB=MARYSUE                                                              

    JOB=MARYSUE                                            DATE=15.202    PAGE 0001

                                                                                  

    JOB  ----JCL---      SYSTEM  USR MAIN PROSE  SCHED  --NUMBER OF-   LAST-RUN 

    NAME    ID  MEMBER   -NAME-  -ID -ID- DSNBR  DSNBR  STP DDS RUNS   DATE/TIME

                                                                                  

    MARYSUE  000 MARYSUE  LVL1    000 ALL  *NONE* *NONE* 000 000 0000  15202/0836

     

    If  the jobs run out of order sometimes you need to get things ‘back in sync’—and that can be accomplished by a command to reset the LAST-RUN DATE/TIME:

     

    NXTCYC,JOB=jobname,SET=RUN,LRDATE=yyddd,LRTIME=hhmmssth

     

    If you have questions on this feature (or others), you know what to do now—LET’S CHAT!

     

    Until next time—Bye,Y’all
