Date and Time:


I created this REXX program in January of 2020. It can be launched by calling the EXEC from the command line with "TSO TABLE TABLENAME", or another given name if desired. The tool searches in a series of files and libraries for the indicated string passed when calling the REXX EXEC.

The purpose when executing this utility is to shorten the time needed to see what jobs launch Imagecopy or STOP/START commands to a DB2 table. The utility comes in handy when it comes to figure why a table is in a certain status and to see what are the possible jobs that will modify that status.

The result is visible on a simple ISPF panel, which was previously created in a member. It takes around 10 seconds to run in the current installation, which contains over 228,500 JCLs.
