ChangYang Lim,

Just as a suggestion, we are using HelpSystems' ROBOT for our job scheduling.  
It has a learn feature that allows you to run the program once and it learns 
how to submit the job.  Then, in the future, all you have to do is to re-run it 
after change the necessary variables for date range, etc.  However, another 
portion of their product allows you to write a script that can generate the 
variables for you.  I have been running the MRP600 & MRP500 automated for over 
a year now.  I have not had to change date range variables or anything.  Just 
sit back and let it run.  It also runs my month end procedures for me as well.  
I simply manage my tapes and I'm on hand just in case something breaks.  Other 
than that, I have an easy day.

If you have any other questions about ROBOT, feel free to contact me.

For those of you wondering, no, I have no other relationship with HelpSystems 
other than that of CUSTOMER.  I simply like their products.

Good luck
