HI James
Search for a command called runjobscde
You can create one job schedule entry for say midnight, then set up 23 other job schedule entries using runjobscde
This way if something needs to be changed, you only change the midnight
All the others run that one

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Scheduling a more-frequently-than-daily job?

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?
