ADDJOBSCD2      ADD JOB SCHEDULE 2                     TAAJBSC

The Add Job  Schedule 2 command adds  one or more job  schedule entries
from  the  JOBSCDP file  created  by  the CVTJOBSCDE  TAA  Tool to  the
system  job scheduling  function.   A single job  name may  be added, a
set of  generic  job  names,  or all  names  in  a file.    Using  both
CVTJOBSCDE  and ADDJOBSCD2  allows system  job schedule  entries  to be
transported to another system.

The user must be authorized to the TAAJOBSCDE authorization list.

A typical command would be:

             ADDJOBSCD2    JOB(ABC*) JOBSCDPLIB(xxx)

The  JOBSCDP file in the named  library would be read.   Any jobs found
with the  generic  name  ABC  would  be added  to  the  job  scheduling

Prior  to running  ADDJOBSCD2, the  CVTJOBSCDE command  must have  been
run to  create the JOBSCDP file.   For example, it  could have been run
on another system such as:

             CVTJOBSCDE    JOB(ABC*) OUTLIB(xxx)

This would have  created the JOBSCDP  data base file with  the ABC  job
schedule jobs.   The  file could then  be shipped  to the  system where
the job  schedule entries would  be added with  the ADDJOBSCD2 command.

Error recovery

Errors can occur when attempting to add a job schedule entry.

For  example, you may have a job that  cannot be added because the date
the job  is scheduled to  be run on  has passed.   If this occurs,  the
system  will send CPF1634  as a  diagnostic (Date  or Time  has passed)
and  CPF1633  (Job Schedule  Entry  not  added) as  an  escape message.
This will be  followed by a TAA  job log message  that begins with  ***
and refers to the previous message.

You can correct  the problem by changing  the data in the  JOBSCDP file
for the  job in error and then re-running  ADDJOBSCD2 for the same job.
The TAATOOL EDTDBF would be a good tool to use to correct the data.

Assume you attempt to  add several jobs  and have specified  ADDJOBSCD2
JOB(*ALL) from a  JOBSCDP file converted  from another system.   Assume
a  job schedule entry  by the name  of JOBXXX could  not be added.   To
recover, you would do the following:

  **   Review  the system diagnostic message for  the reason.  Prior to
       the diagnostic,  you will  see the  complete ADDJOBSCDE  command
       that was attempted.

  **   Use EDTDBF to  the JOBSCDP file and find the  record for the job
       that  failed.   Look  at the  JSJOB field  for the  JOBXXX name.
       Use F8 to  roll thru the records  in the file.   For the  JOBXXX
       record,  use F11  to  enter  Change Mode.    If  the error  that
       occurred  is  that  the  date to  be  run  on  has been  passed,
       correct the JSSCDD  field to a  date in the  future (the  format
       is CYYMMDD).

  **   Use ADDJOBSCD2 JOB(JOBXXX)  JOBSCDPLIB(yyy).  This  will attempt
       to add only the specific job.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   JOB           The  job name to  search for in  the JOBSCDP file.   A
                 single  name  may  be  used, a  generic  name,  or the
                 special value *ALL.

   ENTRYNBR      The entry  number to be  added.   The default is  *ALL
                 meaning  only the  JOB  parameter  controls which  job
                 entries are added.

                 A  specific  number may  be  entered if  a  single job
                 name is  used or  JOB(*ALL) is  used.   This allows  a
                 specific record  in the  JOBSCDP file  to be added  to
                 the job scheduling function.

                 A specific  number may not be used  when a generic job
                 name is used.

   JOBSCDPLIB    The  library  containing  the   JOBSCDP  file.     The
                 default is  *LIBL.   The file  must have been  created
                 by the CVTJOBSCDE command.

   MBR           The member  containing the job schedule  entries.  The
                 default   is  JOBSCDP  which  is  the  default  member
                 assigned when CVTJOBSCDE is used.


The user must be authorized to the TAAJOBSCDE authorization list.

The file to be  read must have been  output by the CVTJOBSCDE TAA  Tool


The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKGENERC       Check generic
     CHKOBJ3         Check object 3
     EDTVAR          Edit variable
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
     SNDSTSMSG       Send status message


None, the tool is ready to use.
