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?
