    When I use the following command:  JRENAME,AAAG1,NEWJOB=AAAG1JM   I have noticed a problem.  It changes everything EXCEPT the member name.  This has caused us to have skeleton jobs come in and research (until I figured out what was happening) and I have to go in and manually change the member name every time I want to rename a job.  We are on 12.0

    1.  Am I doing it wrong?
    2.  Am I missing something?
    3.  Is there a patch we haven't put on?

    Hello Renate,

    JRENAME does not change a JCL PDS member. The member name field is not updated.

    This is by design and we do document this in the Commands Guide. The reason is that some clients do not always have the member name the same as the job name.
