CHKACTJOB       CHECK ACTIVE JOB                       TAAJOEL

The Check Active  Job command determines  whether a job or  generic job
name is  active.  This  can be helpful  in determining if  a server job
is  active.   TAA9893 is  sent as  an escape  message if  the specified
parameters do not find a job.

*JOBCTL authority is required to use CHKACTJOB.

A typical command would be:

             CHKACTJOB     JOB(QFTP*)
             MONMSG        MSGID(TAA9893) EXEC(DO) /* Not active */
                           /* Your code to handle not active */
             ENDDO         /* Not active */

CHKACTJOB escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No jobs are active

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
