Subject: Capturing job log information on a text file
I had sent the question included herein to be posted on RPG
400 programming to rpg400-l-owner@xxxxxxxxxxxx; however, it
got rejected since the moderator considered it had nothing to
do with RPG programming. Well, since they advised me to send
it to this forum, I am proceeding as suggested and hope this
time around it gets approved for posting. Thank you, in advance.
The message I would like to be posted is as follows:
First of all, I am not a programmer, so what I'm looking for
is some sort of guidance with a project I have.
I know AS/400 from a user/administrative perspective but I
have been asked to come up with a way to export the start and
end times of jobs running in QBATCH subsystem to a flat file
that then can be exported to a document such as a spreasheet.
This is to reflect the times both start, end and the obtain
the elapsed time for a series of jobs that run in a daily basis.
Since I have no prior programming experience on RPG or COBOL
or the sort, I have no clue on how to do this (well, so maybe
someone can start by recommending me to study programming in
this environment but I would like to take that approach only
if necessary) I have tools such as the entire IBM ISeries
Access for Windows kit (That comes with a green screen 5250
emulator and Windows Navigator interface) but cannot seem to
find a way to do that here.
If I could only find a way to capture the start and end times
of jobs (from job log) and export that information to a
file, that's basically all I need.
Any one has any idea? Maybe someone can even refer me to a
Thanks a lot for any help.....In advance.
