The Display Submitted Jobs command provides a display that is similar
to that provided by the system WRKSBMJOB command except that the user
cannot perform actions against the jobs. An option exists to allow a
display of any spooled files associated with the job. An outfile is
optional. DSPSBMJOB may be helpful if you have a menu oriented
system and want to prevent users from changing, holding, or ending
The model file is TAAJOCDP with a format of SBMJOBR.
The intent of the command is that it would be used in place of
WRKSBMJOB as an option on a user menu. No command line exists.
However, if the spooled file option is specified, a command line does
exist on the system spooled file display.
A typical command would be:
This displays the jobs submitted by the current user in job number
order. The display that appears is similar to that provided by
WRKSBMJOB, but would only allow the option to display more details
about the job or to work with the spooled files of the job.
The SPLF parameter allows control of whether the user will be allowed
to see any spooled files of a submitted job, just display the spooled
files, or have the full capability of WRKJOB OPTION(*SPLF).
The SPLF option *PGM may also be used to run a user exit program.
The intent of this function is to be able to do a function such as
the TAA WRKALLSPLF command. See the later discussion.
The APIs used include:
Ascending or Descending option
F6 may be used to flip/flop the display between ascending or
descending order of Job Numbers. The display first appears in
'Ascending order' (described in the upper right hand corner) with the
F6 text at the bottom of the display allowing for 'Descending'.
If F6 is pressed, the display is refreshed so the text in the upper
right hand corner indicates 'Descending sequence' and the F6 text at
the bottom becomes 'Ascending'.
The F6 option is not valid if the Job Numbers retrieved have rolled
over from 999999 to 000001.
Spooled file handling program
By specifying SPLF(*PGM) and naming a user exit program in the
SPLFPGM parameter, a user program can be used instead of the system
functions to process spooled files.
The TAA WRKALLSPLF command may be used to allow a user defined set of
options and command keys.
The user program is passed 3 parameters:
- Job name *CHAR LEN(10) Requested job name
- Job user *CHAR LEN(10) Requested job user
- Job number *CHAR LEN(6) Requested job number
A typical program would be coded as:
PGM PARM(&JOB &USER &JOBNBR)
DCL &JOB *CHAR LEN(10)
DCL &USER *CHAR LEN(10)
DCL &JOBNBR *CHAR LEN(6)
Other options could be specified on the WRKALLSPLF command.
Specifying the qualified job name causes only the spooled files for
the named job to be displayed.
A demonstration program is available using the above code. Invoke it
DSPSBMJOB SPLF(*PGM) PGM(TAATOOL/TAAJOCDC12)
Command parameters *CMD
SBMFROM The type of submitted jobs to be displayed. This is
the same parameter as on WRKSBMJOB, but the only
value is *USER which displays the jobs submitted by
the current user.
The parameter exists to allow for future expansion
if the system APIs provide for a rapid access to the
WRKSBMJOB functions of *WRKSTN and *JOB.
SPLF Whether to allow the user to display or work with
the spooled files of the submitted jobs. The
default is *WRK which causes the function of WRKJOB
JOB(xxx) OPTION(*SPLF) to be used. The user would
have full control to display, change, or delete the
spooled files in addition to being able to respond
to spool messages.
*DSP may be specified to cause the function of
DSPJOB JOB(xxx) OPTION(*SPLF) to be used. The user
can only display the spooled files associated with
*PGM may be specified if a program is named in the
SPLFPGM parameter to allow a user program to process
the spooled files. The intent of this parameter is
to allow a function such as the TAA WRKALLSPLF
command to be used. See the previous comments for
how to write the program.
*NONE may be specified to prevent the user from any
access to the spooled files of the job.
SPLFPGM The qualified name of the user program to process
spooled files. The default is blank for both the
program and library name. If a name is entered,
SPLF(*PGM) must be specified. If the library
qualifier is blank, *LIBL is assumed.
See the previous discussion for the parameter list
passed to the program and sample code.
OPTION8TXT The constant to be displayed if SPLF(*PGM) is
specified. The default is *DFT meaning the name of
the program will be displayed.
A value may be entered such as '8=Display spooled
OUTPUT The type of output. *DSP is the default to display
*OUTFILE may be entered to create an outfile of the
OUTLIB The library to be used if OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) is
specified. *LIBL is the default and may be used if
the SBMJOBP file already exists on the library list.
A specific library may be entered.
OUTMBR The member to be used in the SBMJOBP outfile.
*FIRST is the default.
A specific member may be named.
REPLACE Whether to replace the data in the member of the
outfile. *YES is the default.
*NO may be specified to add data to the existing
A maximum of 9999 jobs can be displayed or output to the outfile. If
the limit is exceeded, a message appears on the first display
informing the user that not all jobs are shown.
