Alan,

We had similar issues when we only had WRKJOBSCDE.
We had two jobs.

Also consider upgrading your job scheduler.
Many more scheduling options available.
We run both AJS and Robot Schedule/Replay.
The both have their pros/cons.

Paul

Thanks for the reply Mark
Im leaning towards a second job scheduled entry for the 1st of the month only, but loading in all the dates that the first of the month is a Saturday, into the omit parameter OMITDATE for the next 10 years or so

Hi, Alan,

Use two WRKJOBSCDE entries, to keep it simple, one for every Saturday, and one for the first of each month, and ensure that they both submit these jobs to the same single-threaded job queue, and have the job set an indicator, e.g. in a *DTAARA, to show the date the job was last run.


Then, the first step in the job is to retrieve that data area and if the job already ran today, just have that second job exit immediately.


Hope that helps,

Mark S. Waterbury

Hi everyone
Before I forget - we are on V7r3
We have a WRKJOBSCDE that is scheduled to run every Saturday @ 7:00 a.m.
The users would now like this to be run on the first of each month as well - also @ 7:00 a.m.
Is this possible within the same job scheduled entry?
I would prefer NOT to have 2 separate job scheduled entries - a new one for the first of each month as February 1, 2020 is a Saturday and I don't want 2 instances of the same job/programs being run at the same time

As always - all answers gratefully accepted
