Thanx in advance for any help/suggestions. Good day. The QUSLJOB API will give you this information. You can specify jobs with various status, like *active, *jobq or *outq. You can also specify the kind of jobs you want to see, like batch, subsystem, interactiv, etc. In the input parameters you can say what information you want for each job listed. Format JOBL0200 will return whatever you asked for. The job description name is identified by key code 1003. I've had good results running something like this in CL, although you don't get the performance benefits of pointers that you can in ILE RPG. The drawback is, you might miss some jobs, since this process doesn't run continuously. I like J Moreno's solution, which creates a log entry whenever a job is started. Otherwise, you might try making sure all jobs leave a joblog. There'll be information about the job description in the heading. CPYSPLF will let you retrieve this. Of course, if all jobs leave a joblog, they'll be caught in jobs in *outq status!
