Agreed. This is one of the selling points for AJS.

There is a LOT more in there of course but this step capability alone has sold it for several customers of mine.

Advanced job scheduler can do this, I believe.

Do you have that installed?

Subject: 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?
