Hello Rob,

That is normal behaviour.

A job on a job queue cannot possibly have spooled OUTPUT files but it can have 
spooled INPUT files.  These are commonly called inline data files because the 
data is INLINE in 
the job stream.  Anyone else remember the Submit Database Job (SBMDBJOB) 
command?  Here is an 
example.  Type the following into a source member -- type should be CL, not CLP 
(don't worry 
about SEU telling you the command is not allowed);

//BCHJOB  JOB(MYJOB)
CRTCLPGM PGM(DELETEME) SRCFILE(QINLINE)
//DATA FILETYPE(*SRC)
PGM
ENDPGM
//
//ENDBCHJOB

Then HOLD one of your job queues and use SBMDBJOB to spool the job via the 
reader using the job 
queue you held.  You could also specify a job description that has HOLD(*YES) 
defined.  Use 
WRKSBMJOB and take 8=Spooled files.  You should see something like:

                         Display Job Inline Data Files                     
                                                                           
 Job  . . . . . . . . :   MYJOB           Job queue  . . . . . :   QBATCH  
   User . . . . . . . :     QPGMR           Library  . . . . . :     QGPL  
   Number . . . . . . :     129174                                         
                                                                           
 File           Records                                                    
 QINLINE              2                                                    

There will be one list entry for every //DATA statement in the CL source.  You 
will only see 
this display while the job is on the job queue.  Once it becomes active, the 
inline files have 
been processed and the display shows spooled output files.

Remember to release the job queue when you're done.

Hmm, I guess that really does qualify me as a geezer.  Why does the system work 
this way?  
Well, that's a story for another time.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
