    ****************************************************************
    When the SCHEDULE JCL statement (introduced in z/OS 2.2) is
    not the first statement in the job after the JOB statement,
    the job will fail with JCL error:
      IEFC019I  MISPLACED SCHEDULE STATEMENT
    This requirement is too strict. Instead, the SCHEDULE
    statement should be required to reside after the JOB statement
    and prior to the first EXEC or IF statement.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • JCL Converter processing is changed to issue JCL error message
    IEFC019I when the SCHEDULE statement is found after the first
    EXEC or IF statement in the job. Additionally, if the SCHEDULE
    statement is found more than once in a job, the job will be
    failed with JCL error:
       IEFC020I  DUPLICATE SCHEDULE STATEMENT
    
    Additional keyword: MSGIEFC019I MSGIEFC020I

     - Modify the flagged text as indicated below:
    
     SCHEDULE Statement
       The SCHEDULE statement is used to specify scheduling
       attributes for a job such as the job group it is
       associated with and whether the job should be held until
       a specified time for execution.  The SCHEDULE statement
       is ignored for the started tasks (STC) and TSO
       sessions (TSO).
    
       Note: In z/OS version 2 release 2, the SCHEDULE statement
       is only supported by JES2.
    
    |  The SCHEDULE statement must be placed in the job following
    |  the JOB statement and prior to the first EXEC or IF
    |  statements. Only one instance of the SCHEDULE statement is
    |  permitted in a job.

       Location in the JCL:
    |  The SCHEDULE statement must be placed after the JOB
    |  statement and prior to the first EXEC or IF statement.
