Thanks for the enlightenment about advanced scheduler.  Again, my needs for
a scheduler have been pretty limited.  Most of the things that you mention
can be "worked around" with the WRKJOBSCDE (ie schedule a job to run from
6a-5p every day, multiple entries into the scheduler).

Hi Carl,

The 'advanced scheduler ' let's one do quite a few things:

a.) Schedule daily recurring jobs, starting at a specific time (e.g. 06h00)
and ending at a specific time (e.g. 17h00).
b.) Specify the intervals at which these jobs shoyuld run, e.g. every 'n'
minutes or hours.
c.) Create job streams with dependency checking, i.e. job 2 cannot continue
unless job1 has a succesful completion message.
d.) IIRC, branching depending on completion message.
e.) Inclusion of messages and or actions, depending on completion status
(abend, etc.)

There are a few more. It is quite a worthwhile product!!
