Error description

  • Customer has a batch job that has a fixed-step start time value
    specified in the Programmer Name Field.  Sometimes when the job
    is run, the time that is in the output will be less than the
    specified time.
    An example is this:  //HGF2300
    The "F" says this is a fixed-step start time specification (see
    page 22 in the Usage and Installation Guide).
    This is the time parameter in the Programmer Name Field of the
    Job card, and it should cause a time of 23:00:00 to display in
    the output.  Occasionally when the job is run, the time will
    show something like this:
    AGGVR01I LINKAGE=SVC LOCAL DATE=1999-01-23, TIME=22:59:59:34.
    This is in the output of the AGGBVRFY job.  The time is less
    than the time that was specified.
