    Is there a way to define dummy schedule for a job in Ca7? Dummy means, a job with out any particular date to run but still should have a calendar attached and schedule time defined. The reason for this question is,I have a requirement to run a job every month as requested by the job owner and it will be for continues 5-6 days schedule. I can used DEMAND command but since the request is for 5-6 days, I feel difficulty to use it every time. Currently what we are doing is define a schedule and delete it after the 5-6 days schedule completes because it might cause issues in next year run if we leave it unintentionally.

    You can create a dummy schedule with the following:


    __ X __ MONTHLY   JAN: X  FEB: X  MAR: X  APR: X  MAY: X  JUN: X    

                       JUL: X  AUG: X  SEP: X  OCT: X  NOV: X  DEC: X    

               WEEK:                   DAY-OF-WEEK:                      

               RDAY: /-0                                                


    This will give the job a schedule member with all days 'turned off'.  You can 'turn them on' with the SCHDMOD screen.

    could you just NOEXEC a process ?

    If nothing else I think it is neat that we can do it.   I'm not sure I will ever use it but I didn't know we could do it either.  Always nice to know something new.

    I don't see making NO-EXEC useful in my case as the schedule of the job is not consistent. I see Marysue's suggestion as the best one in my case. Thanks.

    I thought NOEXEC dummy's put a process to run to success regardless. you would think it would be as similar. but however you like..

    have a nice day.
