Fellow Midrange geeks and geekettes:

Most of you probably already know that my "weapon of choice" for setting up a job to run periodically is a self-perpetuating batch job: when runs, it schedules its own next run.

I do understand the basics of job schedule entries, but I'm not always in a position to use them, and I figured out self-perpetuating batch jobs before I learned about them.

Now, I have situations that call for a job to run not just daily, but *hourly* (at least during business hours). I've got it set up with self-perpetuating batch jobs, but I just took a look at WRKJOBSCDE and ADDJOBSCDE. I don't see anything there for setting up a job schedule entry for more than once daily.

Is there a way, short of setting up a separate job schedule entry for every time the job should run during a typical day?
