Sorry, but THIS will only work in RPG not in CL

What you can do in CL is to create a temporary view (based on the SELECT
statement) ... which you define with DCLF and then read the content with
RCVF (like for any other physical file/table)

Hi,

You could also execute the following SQL within CL

SELECT count(*) into :jobcount
FROM TABLE(QSYS2.ACTIVE_JOB_INFO()) B
WHERE JOB_NAME like '%Jobname%'

If you get jobcount = 0 then you are good ..

This won't work if the jobs that are no longer active still have spool
files.

Hi ,

I just do a WRKJOB jobname and then monmsg CPF1070

If the MONMSG catches CPF1070 (job not found) then I continue to submit the
new job...
