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
This will give the job a schedule member with all days 'turned off'. You can 'turn them on' with the SCHDMOD screen.
Thank you so much for your help
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.
