Nathan, Richard, all,

I've used the data area technique in the past with a status of 1) need to run,
2) am running, and 3) am done, for each step.  It worked great for an abend
during any step and a programmed recovery/restart.

That works well for the individual steps and the whole process.

Back to my original question and the problem I'm trying to solve:  How do I lock
up the work station, showing step progress bars, while submitting the whole
process to batch to use the better CPW?
