I think you need the advanced job scheduled to do it in a single job.
Your thought about two job schedule entries with omit dates is how we have
accomplished it in the past.

A CL program certainly can be written to accomplish it but by the time you
get the permutations and exceptions built in it’s quite a piece of work, so
we opted for the simpler approach.

Thanks for the reply Luis
I was thinking about creating a second job scheduled entry to be run on
the first of each month, but populating the omit dates parameter with all
the dates that are the first of each month that falls on a Saturday - going
out for the next 10 years or so
There cant be THAT many

Alan,

AFAIK, that is not possible with WRKJOBSCDE.
Why don't you create a small program that gets called each day and decides
whether to execute or not your job (using the system date as a parameter)?

Regards,
Luis

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
